:abbr:`SHARP (Super Happy Advanced Routing Process)` is a daemon that provides miscellaneous functionality used for testing FRR and creating proof-of-concept labs.
.. program:: sharpd
:abbr:`SHARP` supports all the common FRR daemon start options which are documented elsewhere.
All sharp commands are under the enable node and preceeded by the
keyword. At present, no sharp commands will be preserved in the config.
.. index:: sharp install
.. clicmd:: sharp install routes A.B.C.D <nexthop <E.F.G.H|X:X::X:X>|nexthop-group NAME> (1-1000000) [instance (0-255)] [repeat (2-1000)] Install up to 1,000,000 (one million) /32 routes starting at ``A.B.C.D`` with specified nexthop ``E.F.G.H`` or ``X:X::X:X``. The nexthop is a ``NEXTHOP_TYPE_IPV4`` or ``NEXTHOP_TYPE_IPV6`` and must be reachable to be installed into the kernel. Alternatively a nexthop-group NAME can be specified and used as the nexthops. The routes are installed into zebra as ``ZEBRA_ROUTE_SHARP`` and can be used as part of a normal route redistribution. Route installation time is noted in the debug log. When zebra successfully installs a route into the kernel and SHARP receives success notifications for all routes this is logged as well. Instance (0-255) if specified causes the routes to be installed in a different instance. If repeat is used then we will install/uninstall the routes the number of times specified.
.. index:: sharp remove
.. clicmd:: sharp remove routes A.B.C.D (1-1000000) Remove up to 1,000,000 (one million) /32 routes starting at ``A.B.C.D``. The routes are removed from zebra. Route deletion start is noted in the debug log and when all routes have been successfully deleted the debug log will be updated with this information as well.
.. index:: sharp label
.. clicmd:: sharp label <ipv4|ipv6> vrf NAME label (0-1000000) Install a label into the kernel that causes the specified vrf NAME table to be used for pop and forward operations when the specified label is seen.
.. index:: sharp watch
.. clicmd:: sharp watch nexthop <A.B.C.D|X:X::X:X> Instruct zebra to monitor and notify sharp when the specified nexthop is changed. The notification from zebra is written into the debug log.
