MAP-MBONE(8) BSD System Manager's Manual MAP-MBONE(8)
map-mbone -- multicast connection mapper
map-mbone [-d debug_level] [-f] [-g] [-n] [-r retry_count]
[-t timeout_count] [starting_router]
The map-mbone utility attempts to display all multicast routers that are
reachable from the multicast starting_router. If not specified on the
command line, the default multicast starting_router is the localhost.
The map-mbone utility traverses neighboring multicast routers by sending
the ASK_NEIGHBORS IGMP message to the multicast starting_router. If this
multicast router responds, the version number and a list of their neigh-
boring multicast router addresses is part of that response. If the
responding router has recent multicast version number, then map-mbone
requests additional information such as metrics, thresholds, and flags
from the multicast router. For each new occurrence of neighboring multi-
cast router in the reply and provided the flooding option has been
selected, then map-mbone asks each of this multicast router for a list of
neighbors. This search for unique routers will continue until no new
neighboring multicast routers are reported.
The following options are available:
-d Set the debug level. When the debug level is greater than the
default value of 0, addition debugging messages are printed.
Regardless of the debug level, an error condition, will always
write an error message and will cause map-mbone to terminate.
Non-zero debug levels have the following effects:
packet warnings are printed to stderr.
all level 1 messages plus notifications down networks are
printed to stderr.
all level 2 messages plus notifications of all packet
timeouts are printed to stderr.
-f Set flooding option. Flooding allows the recursive search of
neighboring multicast routers and is enable by default when
starting_router is not used.
-g Set graphing in GraphEd format.
-n Disable the DNS lookup for the multicast routers names.
Set the neighbor query retry limit. Default is 1 retry.
Set the number of seconds to wait for a neighbor query reply
before retrying. Default timeout is 2 seconds.
The map-mbone utility must be run as root.
