NAME

ifindex - Create nodelist index  

SYNOPSIS

ifindex [-h] [-x verbosity] [-I file]

 

DESCRIPTION

Ifindex creates a nodelist index which is used by ifcico for faster nodelist lookups.

Depending on the OPTIONS set when compiling the program, one of 3 different nodelist indices will be generated: a db- a (g)dbm- or a dbz- version. The dbz- type nodelist-index has some advantages (smaller indices and faster index generation) over the other 2 types but is currently only in PRE-ALPHA state - you should also read the README before using this type of nodelist-index.  

OPTIONS

-h

-I File
Use the alternate configuration file File.
