atmifmp - Configures the ATM subsystem for switching IP traffic only
/usr/sbin/atmifmp command arguments
Arguments can appear in any order after the command. All required arguments must be specified.
This section is organized by the tasks you can perform with the atmifmp command. Each task subsection provides the atmifmp command syntax and the flags to use to complete the tasks.
/usr/sbin/atmifmp attach ips=num driver=name
[snapvci=vci] [rxmin=vci] [rxmax=vci]
[txmin=vci] [txmax=vci] Creates a point-to-point, multicast-capable virtual interface on a driver as specified in the next two arguments. If the virtual interface already exists but is not currently attached (because it was previously attached and detached), the command creates an association between the virtual interface and the specified driver.
/usr/sbin/atmifmp detach ips=num Disassociates the virtual interface, ipsnum, from the driver to which it was previously attached. Prior to detaching the interface, you must delete the ips interface's address and bring down the the ips interface using the ifconfig(8) command. Specifies the ips interface.
atmifmp showips [ips=num] Displays the state of all ips interfaces, unless an interface is specified by the next argument. Information displayed includes the interface attachment state, the driver to which the interface is attached, the default SNAP VC, the interface and driver receive/transmit/minimum/maximum VC ranges, and IFMP and Flow configuration information. Specifies the ips interface.
/usr/sbin/atmifmp stats [ips=num] [clear] Displays the flow and IFMP statistics for all ips interfaces, unless an interface is specified by the next argument. Specifies the ips interface. Zeros the flow and IFMP statistics for all ips interfaces, unless an interface is specified. Statistics are displayed after they are cleared.
/usr/sbin/atmifmp flows [ips=num] [long] Displays flows created by the IP switching module on all interfaces, unless an interface is specified by the next argument. Information displayed for each flow includes the Flow ID, the transmit or receive VC associated with the Flow, the Flow Type, the number of packets sent or received, and VC aging information. Specifies the ips interface. Displays additional information about each flow, such as the information encoded in the Flow ID.
The atmifmp command enables and disables IP switching on a Tru64 UNIX end system that has an attached ATMworks ATM adapter. The IP switching architecture is based on the Ipsilon Networks, Inc. reference model, and enables you to configure the Tru64 UNIX ATM subsystem to support only IP traffic over an ATM network. The IFMP protocol associates an ATM virtual circuit with an IP data flow.
If an ips interface is attached to a specific ATM adapter on your system, you cannot use that adapter to run ATM Forum protocols (UNI signaling, Classical IP, or Local Area Network Emulation (LANE)). Multiple adapters are required.
