 NAME
      nettladm - network tracing and logging administration manager

 SYNOPSIS
      /opt/nettladm/bin/nettladm [-t|-l] [-c filter_file]

 DESCRIPTION
      The nettladm command is a tool used to administer network tracing and
      logging. It provides an interactive user interface to the nettl,
      netfmt, and nettlconf commands.  The interface runs in either text
      terminal mode or in a Motif graphical environment.   To run nettladm
      using Motif windows set the DISPLAY environment variable to match the
      system name (e.g., DISPLAY=system:0.0) prior to using the command.

      The nettladm command starts a menu-driven program that makes it easy
      to perform network tracing and logging tasks with only limited
      specialized knowledge of HP-UX.  nettladm is a self-guided tool, and
      context-sensitive help is available at any point by pressing the f1
      function key.

    Options
      nettladm recognizes the following options:

      -l	     Shortcut to enter the ``Logging Subsystems'' (logging)
		     area.  This is the default.

      -t	     Shortcut to enter the ``Tracing Subsystems'' (tracing)
		     area.

      -c filter_file Use the contents of filter_file as the default set of
		     subsystem formatting criteria when creating reports
		     within the ``Create Report'' area.	 The defaults can be
		     overridden through the interface screens.	Global
		     filters (those beginning with the word FORMATTER) and
		     comments are ignored.  See netfmt(1M) for the
		     description and syntax of filter_file.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multibyte character code sets are supported in data;
      single-byte character code sets are supported in file names.

 WARNINGS
      Changes to logging and tracing levels and states are not preserved
      across system reboots or stops and restarts from outside of the
      nettladm command.	 Permanent changes must be made to the
      /etc/nettlgen.conf file using the nettlconf command.  Note that
      changes to console logging and all logging startup parameters are
      preserved.

      Although the nettladm command allows the specification of all log
      classes and all trace kinds for all subsystems, many subsystems do not
      support all log classes and all trace kinds.  No error or warning will
      be issued if a subsystem does not support a log class or trace kind.
      Refer to the product documentation of the subsystem for information on
      supported log classes and trace kinds.

      The nettladm command reads the /etc/nettlgen.conf and
      /var/adm/conslog.opts files each time it is run (see
      nettlgen.conf(4)).  If the files become corrupted, this command will
      no longer be operational.

 DEPENDENCIES
      nettladm runs in an X Windows environment as well as on the following
      kinds of terminals or terminal emulators:

	   +  HP-compatible terminal with programmable function keys and
	      on-screen display of function key labels.

	   +  VT-100
