-c config Specify configuration file
-d Work in background
-r Import saved accounting table on startup
-s Save the active accounting table on exit

RSH COMMANDS

Once started, ipcad listens for rsh requests and/or exports NetFlow. In case of rsh, data can be requested from ipcad by issuing a following:

rsh localhost command

Commands may be freely abbreviated.

    Recognized commands are :

EXAMPLE

Run ipcad as daemon, import saved state tables on startup and save them on exit:

Save statistics: the following commands will save statistics for further processing. No data loss will occur in this case.

    rsh localhost cle ip acco

    rsh localhost sh ip acco checkpoint > file_to_parse
