NAME
     ifstated -- Interface State daemon

SYNOPSIS
     ifstated [-dhinv] [-D macro=value]	[-f file] [-p pidfile]

DESCRIPTION
     The ifstated daemon runs commands in response to network state changes,
     which it determines by monitoring interface link state or running exter-
     nal tests.	 For example, it can be	used with carp(4) to change running
     services or to ensure that	carp(4)	interfaces stay	in sync, or with pf(4)
     to	test server or link availability and modify translation	or routing
     rules.  The options are as	follows:

     -D	macro=value
	     Define macro to be	set to value on	the command line.  Overrides
	     the definition of macro in	the configuration file.

     -d	     Do	not daemonize and log to stdout.

     -f	file
	     Specify an	alternate location, file, for the configuration	file.

     -p	pidfile
	     Specify the location, pidfile, for	the PID	file.

     -h	     Print help	message.

     -i	     Ignore initial interface states.

     -n	     Config test mode.	Check config validity, then exit.

     -v	     Verbose mode.  Use	twice to further increase verbosity.

     Upon receiving SIGHUP, ifstated reloads the configuration file.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/ifstated.conf  ifstated configuration file.
