-n configname

-c pathname
Path to conf files directory, overrides compiled-in value
-u pathname
Path to user data files directory, overrides compiled-in value

-D[options]
Special debugging options

-De

-Df
Add GMT timestamps to debugging messages in format YYYYMMDDhhmmss.uuuuuu
 

COMMANDS

Each command is sent to the YATE modules immediately after initialization. Modules define command syntax so that is not described here. Please look at the documentation for each module.  

SIGNALS

- SIGTERM and SIGINT (Ctrl-C) will cleanly stop the engine
- SIGQUIT (Ctrl-\) will reinitialize the modules
- SIGHUP will reinitialize the modules if started in daemon mode (-d)
- SIGUSR1 will initiate a gracefull restart (when no plugin is busy)
- SIGUSR2 will initiate an immediate restart
 

BUGS

Under various *BSD implementations the dlclose() function is broken and may generate a segfault on exit.

Some libpthread implementations are broken and may fail to start the threads or fail to cleanup when the thread terminates.
