VSYS(8)			     AFS Command Reference		       VSYS(8)

NAME
       vsys - Make AFS system calls from the command line

SYNOPSIS
       vsys <call number> <parms>+

DESCRIPTION
       vsys is a development tool to make AFS system calls from	the command
       line.  <call number> is the AFS system call to be invoked.  <parms>+
       are the values to pass to the system call.  Knowledge of	the AFS	system
       call layer is required to know valid call numbers and parameters.

CAUTIONS
       vsys is intended	for debugging AFS at a low level and is	therefore
       intended	for AFS	developers.  System Administrators and AFS users
       should use the higher-level interfaces provided by fs(1), aklog(1),
       klog(1),	and pagsh(1) instead.

       vsys provides a way to pass arbitrary data into the AFS system call
       mechanism.  Caution should be taken when	using or providing this	binary
       on a system, as incorrect use as	a privileged user could	cause a	system
       to panic, hang, or perform an unsafe operation.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
       The issuer must be logged in as the local superuser root.
