control_rancid - run rancid for devices of a group
control_rancid [-V] [
control_rancid is a
script to parse a groups
run rancid for each of the devices, possibly re-run rancid for devices
that failed collection, e-mail diffs, and e-mail error reports.
control_rancid also creates and/or re-creates the .cvsignore/.gitignore files for each
group. For the configs sub-directory, it includes ".old", where a user
may keep files they would like to be ignored.
The command-line options are as follows:
control_rancid is normally (and best) run via
which provides a locking mechanism on a group basis and saves output
in a log file for each group.
Prints package name and version strings.
-f group_config_file |
Specify an alternative rancid.conf. The global rancid.conf file is read by
rancid-run, which calls
control_rancid for each group, and
control_rancid reads the group-specific rancid.conf, thereby overriding the global file.
The group-specific rancid.conf may not exist.
-m mail_rcpt |
Specify the recipient of diff mail, which is normally rancid-<group>. The
argument may be a single address, multiple comma separated addresses, or
-m may be specified multiple times.
-r device_name |
Specify the name, as it appears in the router.db, of a particular device
to collect and generate diffs for. The device must be marked "up".
-r option alters the subject line of the diff mail. It will begin
with <group name>/<device name> rather than just the group name alone.
