poundctl - control the pound(8) daemon
poundctl -c /path/to/socket [-L/-l] [-S/-s] [-B/-b] [-N/-n] [-H] [-X]
Poundctl controls various aspects of the operation of the pound(8)
The path to the (Unix-domain) socket Pound was configured to
listen on for control. Your Pound configuration file must
contain the directive Control /path/to/socket for poundctl to
Enable/disable a listener. A disabled listener will stop
accepting connection requests.
-S/-s n m
Enable/disable a service. A disabled service will not be used by
Pound to answer requests.
-B/-b n m r
Enable/disable a back-end. A disabled back-end will not be
passed requests to answer. Note however that existing sessions
may still cause requests to be sent their way.
-N n m k r
Add a session to service m in listener n. The session key is k
and it points to back-end r.
-n n m k
Remove a session from service m in listener n. The session key
The parameters n, m and r refer to the number assigned to a particular
listener, service and back-end in the listings. A listener number of -1
refers by convention to the global context.
-H Try to resolve the addresses to symbolic names. Depending on
your configuration, this may require an active DNS.
-X Show the results in XML format.
When called without flags poundctl will print out a listing of the
Pound internal state.
