bridge-utils missing documentation in manpage for RFE 574461
Last modified: 2011-12-06 06:45:46 EST
Description of problem:
new features supporting multicast was added into bridge.
But I found that there is no documatation for
brctl command in man pages for multicast operation, short set bellow.
So I was unable to use brctl properly with multicast.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
for example these
setmclmc <bridge> <int> set multicast last member count
setmcrouter <bridge> <int> set multicast router
setmcsnoop <bridge> <int> set multicast snooping
setmcsqc <bridge> <int> set multicast startup query count
setmclmi <bridge> <time> set multicast last member interval
setmcmi <bridge> <time> set multicast membership interval
setmcqpi <bridge> <time> set multicast querier interval
setmcqi <bridge> <time> set multicast query interval
setmcqri <bridge> <time> set multicast query response interval
setmcqri <bridge> <time> set multicast startup query interval
