NAME         top

       ip-addrlabel - protocol address label management

SYNOPSIS         top

       ip addrlabel  { COMMAND | help }

       ip addrlabel { add | del } prefix PREFIX [ dev DEV ] [ label NUMBER ]

       ip addrlabel { list | flush }

DESCRIPTION         top

       IPv6 address labels are used for address selection; they are
       described in RFC 3484. Precedence is managed by userspace, and only
       the label itself is stored in the kernel.

   ip addrlabel add - add an address label
       add an address label entry to the kernel.

       prefix PREFIX

       dev DEV
              the outgoing interface.

       label NUMBER
              the label for the prefix.  0xffffffff is reserved.

   ip addrlabel del - delete an address label
       delete an address label entry from the kernel.  Arguments: coincide
       with the arguments of ip addrlabel add but the label is not required.

   ip addrlabel list - list address labels
       list the current address label entries in the kernel.

   ip addrlabel flush - flush address labels
       flush all address labels in the kernel. This does not restore any
       default settings.
