The multi-process architecture brings extensibility, modularity and
maintainability. At the same time it also brings many configuration files and
terminal interfaces. Each daemon has its own configuration file and terminal
interface. When you configure a static route, it must be done in the *Zebra*
configuration file. When you configure BGP network it must be done in the
*bgpd* configuration file. This can become difficult to manage. To resolve the
problem, FRR provides integrated user interface shell called *vtysh*. *vtysh*
connects to each daemon with UNIX domain socket and then works as a proxy for
user input.
maintainability. All of the FRR daemons can be managed through a single
integrated user interface shell called *vtysh*. *vtysh* connects to each
daemon through a UNIX domain socket and then works as a proxy for user input.
In addition to a unified frontend, *vtysh* also provides the ability to
configure all the daemons using a single configuration file through the
integrated configuration mode avoiding the problem of having to maintain a
separate configuration file for each daemon.
