nettladm - network tracing and logging administration manager
/opt/nettladm/bin/nettladm [-t|-l] [-c filter_file]
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
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)
-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.
International Code Set Support
Single- and multibyte character code sets are supported in data;
single-byte character code sets are supported in file names.
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

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.
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.
/etc/nettlgen.conf Tracing and logging subsystem
/var/adm/conslog.opts Default console logging
options filter file as
/var/adm/nettl.LOG00 Default log file as specified
/var/adm/nettl.TRC0 Default trace file.
