rsvpd(8)							     rsvpd(8)


  rsvpd	- Resource ReSerVation Protocol	(RSVP) daemon


  /usr/sbin/rsvpd [-h] [-d level] [-p] [-l logfile] [-i	[version]]


  -h  Prints the rsvpd help and	exits.

  -d level
      Enables debug mode.  The debug level is either all (the default) or a
      bitmask that specifies a combination of the following values:

	+  0x01	(SYSTEM)

	+  0x02	(TMR)

	+  0x04	(API)

	+  0x08	(MSGS)

	+  0x10	(TCNTL)

	+  0x20	(SESS)

	+  0x40	(ROUTE)

  -p  Forces rsvpd to stay attached to the terminal and	print error and	debug
      information to stderr instead of the log file.

  -l logfile
      Specifies	an alternative log file.  By default, the log file is

  -i version
      Specifies	a list of Internet Protocol (IP) version numbers.  Possible
      values are 4, 6, or 46.


  The rsvpd daemon is the RSVP daemon that starts automatically	at boot	time.
  Upon startup,	rsvpd performs the following actions:

    +  Writes its PID to the /var/run/rsvpd.pid	file.

    +  Detects all existing interfaces on the system.

    +  Detaches	from the terminal unless the -p	option is specified.

    +  Creates the /var/rsvp directory,	if it does not exist.

  The rsvpd daemon logs	startup, stop, and error messages through the syslog
  function to the /usr/var/adm/syslog.dated/date/daemon.log log	file.  If you
  specify the -d option, rsvpd logs error messages and debugging output	to
  the /var/rsvp/rsvpd_dbg.log log file or to a log file	specified with the -l
  logfile option.

  If you want rsvpd to start automatically at system boot time,	place an
  entry	for it in the /etc/inet.local file.  For example:

       echo "Starting local Internet services."
       # do not	let RSVP reserve more than 20 Mbit/s on	the FDDI interface
       /usr/sbin/iftcntl fta0 config max_total_r 20000000
       # start the RSVP	daemon

  If you make any changes to the network interface configuration, restart the
  rsvpd	daemon.

  If you want to use mrouted and rsvpd on a system, start mrouted before

  If mrouted is	running	on your	system,	rsvpd acts as an RSVP multicast
  router. If IPv4/IPv6 forwarding is enabled on	the system, rsvpd acts as an
  RSVP IPv4/IPv6 unicast router.

  Restricting RSVP Usage

  To restrict RSVP usage to a limited number of	users on the system, set the
  permissions for the /var/rsvp	directory as follows:

       # chmod 750 /var/rsvp
       # chgrp staff /var/rsvp

  Those	users who cannot access	the /var/rsvp directory	will be	unable to
  request RSVP reservations, use any RSVP API (RAPI) function, or use the
  rsvpstat command.


  You must be superuser	to invoke the rsvpd daemon.


      The rsvpd	log file when debugging	is enabled.

      This directory contains the RSVP API library UNIX	domain socket.

      The file that contains the process ID of the rsvpd daemon	that is
      currently	running.
