rancid is a collection of perl(1) scripts which uses the login scripts (see clogin(1)) to
login to a device, execute commands to display the configuration, etc, then filters the
output for formatting, security, and so on. rancid's product is a file with the name of
it's last argument plus the suffix .new. For example, hostname.new.
rancid is a perl(1) script that operates much like the vendor-specific rancid script of
pre-3.0 releases, but is generic and will eventually obsolete the vendor-specific rancid
scripts. It uses the device_type specified with the -t option to look-up a device
description (see rancid.types.conf(5)) that defines what it does to collect and process
There are scripts complementary to rancid for other platforms and/or manufacturers that
are supported by rancid(1). Briefly, these are:

rancid The generic rancid script; supporting Allied Telesis AW+ devices, Arbor
Networks Appliances, Ciena Waverserver, Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS-XR, Cisco NX-

-V Prints package name and version strings.
-d Display debugging information.
-h Display a usage line and exit.
-l Display somewhat less debugging information.

it would normally collect from the device ( hostname) with clogin(1).
