- 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.
