Runs in batch mode, zebra parses its config and exits.

If the zebra process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this file in the directory where you started zebra.

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