NG_TEE(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     NG_TEE(4)

NAME
     ng_tee — netgraph ``tee'' node type

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <netgraph/ng_tee.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The tee node type has a purpose similar to the tee(1) command.  Tee nodes
     are useful for debugging or “snooping” on a connection between two net‐
     graph nodes.  Tee nodes have four hooks, right, left, right2left, and
     left2right.  All data received on right is sent unmodified to both hooks
     left and right2left.  Similarly, all data received on left is sent unmod‐
     ified to both right and left2right.

     Packets may also be received on right2left and left2right; if so, they
     are forwarded unchanged out hooks right and left, respectively.

HOOKS
     This node type supports the following hooks:

     right	   The connection to the node on the right.

     left	   The connection to the node on the left.

     right2left	   Tap for right to left traffic.

     left2right	   Tap for left to right traffic.

CONTROL MESSAGES
     This node type supports the generic control messages, plus the following.

     NGM_TEE_GET_STATS
	  Get statistics, returned as a struct ng_tee_stats.

     NGM_TEE_CLR_STATS
	  Clear statistics.

SHUTDOWN
     This node shuts down upon receipt of an NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.  If both right and left hooks are
     present, node removes itself from the chain gently, connecting right and
     left together.

SEE ALSO
     tee(1), netgraph(4), ngctl(8)

HISTORY
     The ng_tee node type was implemented in FreeBSD 4.0.
