<title>Management API for the DHCPv4 server</title>
Management API has been introduced in Kea 0.9.2. It allows issuing specific
management commands, like statistics retrieval, reconfiguration or shutdown.
For more details, see <xref linkend="ctrl-channel" />. Currently the only
supported communication channel type is UNIX stream socket. By default there
are no sockets open. To instruct Kea to open a socket, the following entry
in the configuration file can be used:
"Dhcp4": {
"control-socket": {
"socket-type": "unix",
"socket-name": <userinput>"/path/to/the/unix/socket"</userinput>
"subnet4": [
Communication over control channel is conducted using JSON structures.
See the Control Channel section in the Kea Developer's Guide for more details.
