NAME

batadv-vis - batman-adv visualization server

SYNOPSIS

batadv-vis [options]

DESCRIPTION

batadv-vis can be used to visualize your batman-adv mesh network. It read the neighbor information and local client table and distributes this information via alfred in the net‐ work. By gathering this local information, any vis node can get the whole picture of the network.

OPTIONS

-v, --version Print the version -h, --help Display a brief help message. -u, --unix-path path path to unix socket used for alfred server communication. -i, --interface iface Specify the batman-adv interface configured on the system (default: bat0) -s, --server Start up in server mode. This server will read the neighbor and client information from batman-adv every 10 seconds and set it in alfred via unix socket. The alfred server must run too to get this information set. -f, --format format Specify the output format for client mode (either "json", "jsondoc" or "dot")

EXAMPLES

Start an batadv-vis server which is fetching the information for bat0: batadv-vis -i bat0 -s To get a graphviz-compatible vis output: batadv-vis digraph { subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:04:01" { "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" } "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:05:01" [label="1.000"] "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.004"] "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:04" [label="TT"] "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:04:01" [label="TT"] subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:02:01" { "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" } "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.000"] "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:01:01" [label="1.008"] "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:08:01" [label="1.000"] "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:02:01" [label="TT"] "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:02" [label="TT"] subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:08:01" { "fe:f0:00:00:08:01" } [...] } To get a json vis output: batadv-vis -f json { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:05:01", "label" : "1.000" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.008" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "00:00:43:05:00:04", "label" : "TT" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "fe:f1:00:00:04:01", "label" : "TT" } { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.000" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:01:01", "label" : "1.016" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:08:01", "label" : "1.000" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "gateway" : "fe:f1:00:00:02:01", "label" : "TT" } { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "gateway" : "00:00:43:05:00:02", "label" : "TT" } { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:08:01" } [...] To get output where the complete document is json: batadv-vis -f jsondoc { "source_version" : "2013.3.0-14-gcd34783", "algorithm" : 4, "vis" : [ { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbors" : [ { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:05:01", "metric" : "1.000" }, { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "metric" : "1.008" } ], "clients" : [ "00:00:43:05:00:04", "fe:f1:00:00:04:01" ] }, { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbors" : [ { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "metric" : "1.000" }, { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:01:01", "metric" : "1.016" }, { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:08:01", "metric" : "1.000" } ], "clients" : [ "fe:f1:00:00:02:01", "00:00:43:05:00:02" ] }, { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:08:01", [...]
