teamdctl - Man Page

team daemon control tool


teamdctl [options] team_device command [command_args...]
teamdctl -h


teamdctl is a tool that allows a user to interact with a running teamd instance. It defaults to using Unix Domain Sockets, but will fall back to using the D-Bus API, to ensure reliable operation in all environments.
