altqd is a daemon program that reads a configuration file and then sets up the ALTQ state of network interfaces. After configuring the ALTQ state, altqd will detach and become a daemon. The signals SIGINT or SIGTERM will shutdown altqd, and the signal SIGHUP will restart altqd. The following options are available: -d Debug mode. altqd does not detach and goes into the command mode. -f conf_file Specify a configuration file to read instead of the default. The default file is /etc/altq.conf. -v Print debugging information. This option implies -d.
COMMANDS
