Service ControlΒΆ

Services controlled directly by TNSR can be restarted from within the TNSR CLI in configuration mode.

To control a service, use the service command as follows:

tnsr# configure
tnsr(config)# service (backend|bgp|dataplane|dhcp|ike|ospf|ospf6|restconf|rip|unbound) <action>
tnsr(config)# service (http|ntp|prometheus|snmp|ssh) <namespace> <action>
name

The name of the service to configure. Must be one of:

backend

Configuration backend (clixon_backend)

bgp

BGP routing (bgpd, zebra)

dataplane

Dataplane (vpp)

dhcp

http

HTTP for RESTCONF API (nginx)

ike

IKE daemon for IPsec (charon)

ntp

Time service (ntpd)

ospf

snmp

namespace

Services which are capable of running in more than one namespace (Networking Namespaces) take the namespace as a second parameter. The namespace can be:

dataplane

Control the service instance running in the dataplane namespace This service will be reachable on interfaces and addresses managed by TNSR.

host

Control the service instance running in the host OS namespace. This service will be reachable on interfaces and addresses managed by the host OS.

action

The action to take on the service. Must be one of:

start

Start the service if it is not already running.

stop

restart

reload
