bptrace - Bundle Protocol (BP) network trace utility


bptrace own_endpoint_ID destination_endpoint_ID report-to_endpoint_ID TTL class_of_service
"trace_text" [status_report_flags]


bptrace uses bp_send() to issue a single bundle to a designated destination endpoint, with
status reporting options enabled as selected by the user, then terminates. The status
reports returned as the bundle makes its way through the network provide a view of the
operation of the network as currently configured.

TTL indicates the number of seconds the trace bundle may remain in the network,
undelivered, before it is automatically destroyed.

class_of_service is custody-requested.priority[.ordinal[.unreliable.critical[.flow-
label]]], where custody-requested must be 0 or 1 (Boolean), priority must be 0 (bulk) or 1
(standard) or 2 (expedited), ordinal must be 0-254, unreliable must be 0 or 1 (Boolean),
critical must also be 0 or 1 (Boolean), and flow-label may be any unsigned integer.
ordinal is ignored if priority is not 2. Setting class_of_service to "0.2.254" or
"1.2.254" gives a bundle the highest possible priority. Setting unreliable to 1 causes BP
to forego retransmission in the event of data loss, both at the BP layer and at the
convergence layer. Setting critical to 1 causes contact graph routing to forward the
bundle on all plausible routes rather than just the "best" route it computes; this may
result in multiple copies of the bundle arriving at the destination endpoint, but when
used in conjunction with priority 2.254 it ensures that the bundle will be delivered as
soon as physically possible.

trace_text can be any string of ASCII text; alternatively, if we want to send a file, it
can be "@" followed by the file name.

status_report_flags must be a sequence of status report flags, separated by commas, with
no embedded whitespace. Each status report flag must be one of the following: rcv, ct,
fwd, dlv, del.


"0" bptrace has terminated.
