       -d
           Enable the debug mode with extra verbosity.

       -c

           It may also contain configuration entries for other Kea services.

       -t
           Check the configuration file and report the first error if any.
           Note that not all parameters are completely checked, in particular,

HISTORY
       The b10-dhcp6 daemon was first coded in June 2011 by Tomek Mrugalski.

       Kea became a standalone server and the BIND10 framework was removed.
       The DHCPv6 server binary was renamed to kea-dhcp6 in July 2014.
