SYNOPSIS

poundctl -c /path/to/socket [-L/-l] [-S/-s] [-B/-b] [-N/-n] [-H] [-X]
 

DESCRIPTION

Poundctl controls various aspects of the operation of the pound(8) program.

OPTIONS

Options available:
-c /path/to/socket
  The path to the (Unix-domain) socket Pound was configured to listen on for control. Your Pound configuration file must contain the directive Control /path/to/socket for poundctl to work.
-L/-l n Enable/disable a listener. A disabled listener will stop accepting connection requests.
-S/-s n m Enable/disable a service. A disabled service will not be used by Pound to answer requests.
-B/-b n m r
  Enable/disable a back-end. A disabled back-end will not be passed requests to answer. Note however that existing sessions may still cause requests to be sent their way.
-N n m k r Add a session to service m in listener n. The session key is k and it points to back-end r.
-n n m k Remove a session from service m in listener n. The session key is k.
The parameters n, m and r refer to the number assigned to a particular listener, service and back-end in the listings. A listener number of -1 refers by convention to the global context.
-H Try to resolve the addresses to symbolic names. Depending on your configuration, this may require an active DNS.
-X Show the results in XML format.
When called without flags poundctl will print out a listing of the Pound internal state.
