Sven Eckelmann July 17, 2021, 11:01 a.m. UTC
The number of subcommands in batctl increased dramatically in the recent
years. But the documentation to the various commands was just added to
random positions in the manpage. This made it harder than necessary to look
things up.

This can be improved by:

* split the subcommand types in different classes to keep similar
  functionality next to each other
* order subcommands alphabetically

+This command starts a throughput test entirely controlled by batman module in
+kernel space: the computational resources needed to align memory and copy data
+between user and kernel space that are required by other user space tools may
+represent a bottleneck on some low profile device.
+
+The test consist of the transfer of 14 MB of data between the two nodes. The
+protocol used to transfer the data is somehow similar to TCP, but simpler: some
+TCP features are still missing, thus protocol performances could be worst. Since
+a fixed amount of data is transferred the experiment duration depends on the
+network conditions. The experiment can be interrupted with CTRL + C. At the end
+of a successful experiment the throughput in KBytes per second is returned,
+together with the experiment duration in millisecond and the amount of bytes
+transferred. If too many packets are lost or the specified MAC address is not
+reachable, a message notifying the error is returned instead of the result.

-batctl will display all packets that are seen on the given interface(s). A variety of options to filter the output
-are available: To only print packets that match the compatibility number of batctl specify the "\-c" (compat filter)
-option. If "\-n" is given batctl will not replace the MAC addresses with bat\-host names in the output. To filter
-the shown packet types you can either use "\-p" (dump only specified packet types) or "\-x" (dump all packet types
-except specified). The following packet types are available:
-
-.TS
-tab (@);
-r lx.
-1@T{
-batman ogm packets
-T}
-2@T{
-batman icmp packets
-T}
-4@T{
-batman unicast packets
-T}
-8@T{
-batman broadcast packets
-T}
-16@T{
-batman unicast tvlv packets
-T}
-32@T{
-batman fragmented packets
-T}
-64@T{
-batman tt / roaming packets
-T}
-128@T{
-non batman packets
-T}

-Analyses the B.A.T.M.A.N. IV logfiles to build a small internal database of all sent sequence numbers and routing table
-changes. This database can then be analyzed in a number of different ways. With "\-l" the database can be used to search
-for routing loops. Use "\-t" to trace OGMs of a host throughout the network. Use "\-r" to display routing tables of the
-nodes. The option "\-s" can be used to limit the output to a range of sequence numbers, between min and max, or to one
-specific sequence number, min. Furthermore using "\-o" you can filter the output to a specified originator. If "\-n" is
-given batctl will not replace the MAC addresses with bat\-host names in the output.

-This command starts a throughput test entirely controlled by batman module in
-kernel space: the computational resources needed to align memory and copy data
-between user and kernel space that are required by other user space tools may
-represent a bottleneck on some low profile device.
-
-The test consist of the transfer of 14 MB of data between the two nodes. The
-protocol used to transfer the data is somehow similar to TCP, but simpler: some
-TCP features are still missing, thus protocol performances could be worst. Since
-a fixed amount of data is transferred the experiment duration depends on the
-network conditions. The experiment can be interrupted with CTRL + C. At the end
-of a successful experiment the throughput in KBytes per second is returned,
-together with the experiment duration in millisecond and the amount of bytes
-transferred. If too many packets are lost or the specified MAC address is not
-reachable, a message notifying the error is returned instead of the result.
