echo "down " > /proc/net/flame/cmd
: name of FLAME device, e.g. flm0
: comma-separated list of MAC devices (at least one) that are
used below the FLAME device. All of these must be up.
: comma-separated list of MAC addresses of devices
for which traffic should be ignored; each MAC address should
be a semicolon-separated list of 6 hex-pairs
- Get current forwarding info from FLAME:
cat /proc/net/flame/fwd
- Get nodes/cost information from MACINFO:
cat /proc/net/macinfo

Use of /proc for an API is no longer desirable. Please rewrite.

hmm, ok, I'm not sure this will happen anytime soon (being a rather low priority thing, which is also the reason it's not submitted as patch to the kernel and not signed off), but what is currently the desirable method?



PS, I'm replying for my colleague, who will see this Monday at the earliest ;-)
