NG_HOLE(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		    NG_HOLE(4)

NAME
     ng_hole --	netgraph discard node type

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <netgraph/ng_hole.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The hole node type	silently discards all data and control messages	it re-
     ceives.  This type	is used	for testing and	debugging.

HOOKS
     A ng_hole node accepts any	request	to connect, regardless of the hook
     name, as long as the name is unique.

CONTROL	MESSAGES
     This node type supports the generic control messages, plus	the following:

     NGM_HOLE_GET_STATS
	     This command takes	an ASCII string	argument, the hook name, and
	     returns the statistics associated with the	hook as	a struct
	     ng_hole_hookstat.

     NGM_HOLE_CLR_STATS
	     This command takes	an ASCII string	argument, the hook name, and
	     clears the	statistics associated with the hook.

     NGM_HOLE_GETCLR_STATS
	     This command is identical to NGM_HOLE_GET_STATS, except that the
	     statistics	are also atomically cleared.

SHUTDOWN
     This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.

SEE ALSO
     netgraph(4), ng_echo(4), ngctl(8)

HISTORY
     The ng_hole node type was implemented in FreeBSD 4.0.
