NETREPORT(1)						      General Commands Manual						      NETREPORT(1)

NAME
netreport - request notification of network interface changes
SYNOPSIS
netreport [-r]
DESCRIPTION
netreport tells the network management scripts to send a SIGIO signal to the process which called netreport when any network interface sta- tus changes occur.
OPTIONS
-r Remove the current request (if any) for the calling process.
NOTES
If a program does not call netreport with the -r option before it exits, and another process is created with the same PID before any changes take place in interface status, it is possible that the new process will receive a spurious SIGIO.
