NAME         top

       devlink-monitor - state monitoring

SYNOPSIS         top

       devlink monitor [ all | OBJECT-LIST ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The devlink utility can monitor the state of devlink devices and
       ports continuously. This option has a slightly different format.
       Namely, the monitor command is the first in the command line and
       then the object list.

       OBJECT-LIST is the list of object types that we want to monitor.
       It may contain dev, port, health, trap, trap-group, trap-policer.

       devlink opens Devlink Netlink socket, listens on it and dumps
       state changes.
