batadv-vis - html man page (v2020.4-2-gdece44c)




SYNOPSIS

       batadv-vis [options]


DESCRIPTION

       batadv-vis can be used to visualize your batman-adv mesh network. It
       read the neighbor information and local client table and distributes
       this information via alfred in the network. By gathering this local in-
       formation, any vis node can get the whole picture of the network.


OPTIONS

       -v, --version
              Print the version

       -h, --help
              Display a brief help message.

       -u, --unix-path path
              path to unix socket used for alfred server communication.

       -i, --interface iface
              Specify the batman-adv interface configured on the system (de-
              fault: bat0)

       -s, --server
              Start up in server mode. This server will read the neighbor and
              client information from batman-adv every 10 seconds and set it
              in alfred via unix socket. The alfred server must run too to get
              this information set.

       -f, --format format
              Specify the output format for client mode (either "json", "json-
              doc" or "dot")


EXAMPLES

       Start an batadv-vis server which is fetching the information for bat0:
            batadv-vis -i bat0 -s

       To get a graphviz-compatible vis output:
            batadv-vis
            digraph {
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:04:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:04:01"
                    }
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:05:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.004"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:04" [label="TT"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:04:01" [label="TT"]
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:02:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:02:01"
                    }
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:01:01" [label="1.008"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:08:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:02:01" [label="TT"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:02" [label="TT"]
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:08:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:08:01"
                    }
            [...]
            }

       To get a json vis output:
            batadv-vis -f json
            { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:05:01", "label" : "1.000" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.008" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "00:00:43:05:00:04", "label" : "TT" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "fe:f1:00:00:04:01", "label" : "TT" }
            { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.000" }
