NAME         top

       tipc - a TIPC configuration and management tool

SYNOPSIS         top


       COMMAND := { bearer | link | media | nametable | node | socket }

       OPTIONS := { -h[help] }

DESCRIPTION         top

       The Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) protocol
       offers total address transparency between processes which allows
       applications in a clustered computer environment to communicate
       quickly and reliably with each other, regardless of their
       location within the cluster.

       TIPC originated at the telecommunications manufacturer Ericsson.
       The first open source version of TIPC was created in 2000 when
       Ericsson released its first Linux version of TIPC. TIPC was
       introduced in the mainline Linux kernel in 2006 and is now widely
       used both within and outside of Ericsson.

OPTIONS         top

       -h, --help
              Show help about last given command. For example tipc
              bearer --help will show bearer help and tipc --help will
              show general help. The position of the option in the
              string is irrelevant.

       -j, -json
              Output results in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).

       -p, -pretty
              The default JSON format is compact and more efficient to
              parse but hard for most users to read.  This flag adds
              indentation for readability.

COMMANDS         top

       BEARER - Show or modify TIPC bearers

       LINK   - Show or modify TIPC links

       MEDIA  - Show or modify TIPC media

              - Show TIPC nametable

       NODE   - Show or modify TIPC node parameters

       SOCKET - Show TIPC sockets

ARGUMENTS         top

       Command arguments are described in a command specific man page
       and typically consists of nested commands along with key value
       pairs.  If no arguments are given a command typically shows its
       help text. The explicit help option -h or --help can occur
       anywhere among the arguments and will show help for the last
       valid command given.

EXIT STATUS         top

       Exit status is 0 if command was successful or a positive integer
       upon failure.
