Network Link Management

About Diald

  • Diald is an intelligent link management tool originally named for its ability to control dial-on-demand network connections.

  • Diald monitors traffic through a network interface and presents connection and utilization details to monitor programs such as dctrl.

  • Diald can be configured to bring on-demand links up and down as required - either by user request or by specific types of packet.

  • Diald is not limited to traditional on-demand links such as modems and ISDN. It can be used to manage any network interface. You could, for instance, use it to manage a WAN interface which is chargable on a per-packet basis.
