B.A.T.M.A.N. advanced control and management tool
B.a.t.m.a.n. advanced control and management tool
This package contains batctl, which serves as configuration utility, monitoring and debugging application. It allows one to modify the module parameters, reading the logfiles and tables, decapsulate embedded packets on the fly, traceroute to and ping mac addresses, generate sequence number graphs for the Layer 2 Mesh B.A.T.M.A.N.
B.A.T.M.A.N. (better approach to mobile ad-hoc networking) is a new routing protocol for multi-hop ad-hoc mesh networks. B.A.T.M.A.N.-advanced is the implementation of this protocol on ISO/OSI Layer 2, allowing mesh networks to be used as a virtual switch. With this approach, LANs and WANs can be easily integrated, and more protocols (like DHCP, IPv6) are supported.
