NAME
       ifmetric - An IPv4 route metrics manipulation tool

SYNOPSIS
       ifmetric INTERFACE [METRIC]

DESCRIPTION
       ifmetric is a Linux tool for setting the metrics of all IPv4 routes
       attached to a given network interface at once. This may be used to change
       the priority of routing IPv4 traffic over the interface. Lower metrics
       correlate with higher priorities.

       ifmetric uses the Linux NETLINK interface to manipulate the routes.
       Because of that it is compatible with routes created with the new
       iproute2 utility.

OPTIONS
       You should specify the interface name as first parameter. The second
       parameter should be the new metric. If omitted the metric 0 (highest) is
       used.

RETURN VALUES
       0 Success

       1 Failure
