Flock Routing Suite Client (flockrsc)

By design flockrsc can be run by a user with no special privileges. flockrsc connects to a Read-Only connection on flockrsd. flockrsd state can be viewed but cannot be changed. All output is in JSON format, making it suitable for consumption by humans or machines.

Changing the output format

By default the output is in JSON Lines format, which is JSON with newlines added to aid reading by a human.

flock@flocknet:~$ flockrsc ospfv2 -a -i -n 10.0.100.3
{"ospf_area_id":"0.0.0.0"}
{"ospf_intf":"enp1s0"}
{"id":"10.0.100.3","ip":"10.0.5.225","state":"Full","dr":"10.0.5.225","bdr":"10.0.5.204"}

Using the -j, --json-pretty flag the output is pretty printed JSON

flock@flocknet:~$ flockrsc ospfv2 -a -i -n 10.0.100.3 -j
[
  {
    "ospf_area_id": "0.0.0.0",
    "ospf_intfs": [
      {
        "ospf_intf": "enp1s0",
        "ospf_neighs": [
          {
            "id": "10.0.100.3",
            "ip": "10.0.5.225",
            "state": "Full",
            "dr": "10.0.5.225",
            "bdr": "10.0.5.204"
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
]

Using the -J, --json flag the output is JSON

flock@flocknet:~$ flockrsc ospfv2 -a -i -n 10.0.100.3 -j
[{"ospf_area_id":"0.0.0.0","ospf_intfs":[{"ospf_intf":"enp1s0","ospf_neighs":[{"id":"10.0.100.3","ip":"10.0.5.225","state":"Full","dr":"10.0.5.225","bdr":"10.0.5.204"}]}]}]
