       zebra - a routing manager for use with associated Quagga components.

       zebra  [ -bdhklrv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -P port-number ] [ -A vty-address
       ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]

       zebra is a routing manager that implements the zebra route engine.  zebra supports  RIPv1,
       RIPv2, RIPng, OSPF, OSPF6, IS-IS, BGP4+, and BGP4-.

       Options available for the zebra command:

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

       -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/zebra.conf.

       -g, --group group
	      Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga.

       -h, --help
	      A brief message.

       -i, --pid_file pid-file
	      When zebra starts its process identifier is written to pid-file.	The  init  system
	      uses   the  recorded  PID  to  stop  or  restart	zebra.	 The  likely  default  is

       -k, --keep_kernel
	      On startup, don't delete self inserted routes.

       -l, --log_mode
	      Turn verbose logging on.

       -P, --vty_port port-number
	      Specify the port that the zebra VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2602, as spec-
	      ified in /etc/services.

       -A, --vty_addr vty-address
	      Specify the address that the zebra VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces.

       -u, --user user
	      Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga.

       -r, --retain
	      When the program terminates, retain routes added by zebra.

       -s, --nl-bufsize netlink-buffer-size
	      Set  netlink  receive  buffer size. There are cases where zebra daemon can't handle
	      flood of netlink messages from kernel. If you ever see "recvmsg  overrun"  messages
	      in zebra log, you are in trouble.

	      Solution	is to increase receive buffer of netlink socket. Note that kernel doesn't
	      allow to increase it over maximum value defined in /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max.  If
	      you want to do it, you have to increase maximum before starting zebra.

	      Note that this affects Linux only.

       -v, --version
	      Print the version and exit.

	      The default location of the zebra binary.

	      The default location of the zebra config file.

	      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 to be a quick reference for command line options. The definitive
       document is the Info file Quagga.

       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.

       zebra   eats   bugs   for   breakfast.	If   you   have  food  for  the  maintainers  try
