OSPFD(8) Version 0.88 OSPFD(8)

ospfd - an OSPF v2 routing engine for use with Zebra

ospfd [ -dhlv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -P port-number ]

ospfd is a routing component that works with the zebra routing engine.

-d, --daemon
Runs in daemon mode, forking and exiting from tty.
-f, --config-file config-file
Specifies the config file to use for startup. If not specified this option will likely default to /usr/local/etc/ospfd.conf.
-h, --help
A brief message.
-i, --pid_file pid-file
When ospfd starts its process idenifier is written to pid-file. The init system uses the recorded PID to stop or restart ospfd. The likely default is /var/run/
-l, --log_mode
Turn verbose logging on.
-P, --vty_port port-number
Specify the port that the ospfd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2604, as specified in /etc/services.
-v, --version
Print the version and exit.

The default location of the ospfd binary.
The default location of the ospfd config file.
If the ospfd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this file in the directory where you started ospfd.

This man page is intended as a quick reference for command line options, and for config file commands. The definitive document is the Info file zebra.

The ospfd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to the system logs. ospfd supports many debugging options, see the Info file, or the source for details.
