Why use iproute2?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This will be a tour of iproute2 features, showing which dedicated tools it supersedes, why it is superior to them and what additional functionality it provides.

I intend to show most of the presented things live in order to better illustrate how working with the 'ip' command looks and feels like.

The project home page is available at: http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/networking/iproute2

Motivation behind this talk is my impression that many users still adhere to traditional tools like 'ifconfig', 'route' or 'netstat' and therefore never get familiar enough with iproute2 to intuitively get around with it for use-cases where there's no alternative to it.
