— packet distribution netgraph
node type provides a simple mechanism for distributing
packets over several links. Packets received on any of the hooks are forwarded
out the other hooks. Packets are not altered in any way.
node accepts any request to connect, regardless of the
hook name, as long as the name is unique.
This node type supports the generic control messages, plus the following:
- This command sets the persistent flag on the node, and
takes no arguments.
This node shuts down upon receipt of a
control message, or when all hooks have been disconnected. Setting the
persistent flag via a
message disables automatic node shutdown when the last hook gets disconnected.
node type appeared in FreeBSD
