ISDNMONITOR(8)            BSD System Manager's Manual           ISDNMONITOR(8)

NAME
     isdnmonitor -- isdn4bsd / isdnd remote monitoring tool

SYNOPSIS
     isdnmonitor [-c] [-d debuglevel] [-f filename] [-h hostspec]
                 [-l pathname] [-p portspec]

DESCRIPTION
     The isdnmonitor utility is used to remotely monitor the operation of the
     isdn daemon, isdnd(8), which manages all ISDN related connection and dis-
     connection of ISDN devices supported by the isdn4bsd package.

     The options are as follows:

     -c      Switch to (curses-) fullscreen mode of operation.  In this mode,
             isdnmonitor behaves nearly exactly as isdnd(8) in fullscreen
             mode.  In fullscreen mode, entering the control character
             Control-L causes the display to be refreshed and entering
             Carriage-Return or Enter will pop-up a command window.  Because
             isdnmonitor will not listen to messages while the command window
             is active, this command window will disappear automatically after
             5 seconds without any command key press.

             While the command window is active, Tab or Space advances to the
             next menu item.  To execute a command, press Return or Enter for
             the highlighted menu item, or enter the number corresponding to
             the item to be executed or enter the capitalized character in the
             menu item description.

     -d      If debugging support is compiled into isdnmonitor this option is
             used to specify the debugging level.

             In addition, this option accepts also the character 'n' as an
             argument to disable displaying debug messages on the full-screen
             display.

     -f      Specifying this option causes isdnmonitor to write its normal
             output and - if enabled - debugging output to a file which name
             is specified as the argument.

     -l      is used to specify a Unix local domain socket name to be used for
             communication between isdnd(8) and isdnmonitor.

     -h      is used to specify a hostname or a dotted-quad IP address of a
             machine where an isdnd(8) is running which should be monitored.

     -p      This option may be used to specify a remote port number in con-
             junction with the -h option.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect the execution of isdnmonitor:

     TERM    The terminal type when running in full-screen display mode.  See
             environ(7) for more information.

EXAMPLES
     For a first try, the following command should be used to start
     isdnmonitor to monitor a locally running isdnd:

           isdnmonitor -h localhost

DIAGNOSTICS
     Exit status is 0 on success, 1 on error.
