CLI and API References

channel manager select

Requests that ChannelManager checks and selects a new channel and starts a channel change.

Unlike the otChannelManagerRequestChannelChange() where the channel must be given as a parameter, this function asks the ChannelManager to select a channel by itself (based on collected channel quality info).

Once called, the Channel Manager will perform the following 3 steps:

1) ChannelManager decides if the channel change would be helpful. This check can be skipped if aSkipQualityCheck is set to true (forcing a channel selection to happen and skipping the quality check). This step uses the collected link quality metrics on the device (such as CCA failure rate, frame and message error rates per neighbor, etc.) to determine if the current channel quality is at the level that justifies a channel change.

2) If the first step passes, then ChannelManager selects a potentially better channel. It uses the collected channel quality data by ChannelMonitor module. The supported and favored channels are used at this step. (see otChannelManagerSetSupportedChannels() and otChannelManagerSetFavoredChannels()).

3) If the newly selected channel is different from the current channel, ChannelManager requests/starts the channel change process (internally invoking a RequestChannelChange()).

OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_CHANNEL_MANAGER_ENABLE and OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_CHANNEL_MONITOR_ENABLE are required.

Parameters

channel manager select skip-quality-check

Use a 1 or 0 for the boolean skip-quality-check.

coaps start

Starts the CoAP Secure service.

Parameters

coaps start [check-peer-cert | max-conn-attempts]

The check-peer-cert parameter determines if the peer-certificate check is enabled (default) or disabled. The max-conn-attempts parameter sets the maximum number of allowed attempts, successful or failed, to connect to the CoAP Secure server. The default value of this parameter is 0, which means that there is no limit to the number of attempts. The check-peer-cert and max-conn-attempts parameters work together in the following combinations, even though you can only specify one argument:

  • No argument specified: Defaults are used.
  • Setting check-peer-cert to true: Has the same effect as omitting the argument, which is that the check-peer-cert value is true, and the max-conn-attempts value is 0.
  • Setting check-peer-cert to false: check-peer-cert value is false, and the max-conn-attempts value is 0.
  • Specifying a number: check-peer-cert is true, and the max-conn-attempts value is the number specified in the argument.

dataset set (active,pending)

Sets the Active Operational Dataset.

If the dataset does not include an Active Timestamp, the dataset is only partially complete.

If Thread is enabled on a device that has a partially complete Active Dataset, the device will attempt to attach to an existing Thread network using any existing information in the dataset. Only the Thread Network Key is needed to attach to a network.

If channel is not included in the dataset, the device will send MLE Announce messages across different channels to find neighbors on other channels.

If the device successfully attaches to a Thread network, the device will then retrieve the full Active Dataset from its Parent. Note that a router-capable device will not transition to the Router or Leader roles until it has a complete Active Dataset.

The CLI dataset set command sets the Active Operational Dataset using hex-encoded TLVs.

Parameters

dataset set {active|pending} tlvs

Examples

dataset set active 0e08000000000001000000030000103506000...3023d82c841eff0e68db86f35740c030000ff

CLI and API References

dns config (set)

Sets the default query config on DNS client.

In a non-NULL aConfig, caller can choose to leave some of the fields in otDnsQueryConfig instance unspecified (value zero). The unspecified fields are replaced by the corresponding OT config option definitions OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENTDEFAULT{} to form the default query config.

When OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_DEFAULT_SERVER_ADDRESS_AUTO_SET_ENABLE is enabled, the server's IPv6 address in the default config is automatically set and updated by DNS client. This is done only when user does not explicitly set or specify it. This behavior requires SRP client and its auto-start feature to be enabled. SRP client will then monitor the Thread Network Data for DNS/SRP Service entries to select an SRP server. The selected SRP server address is also set as the DNS server address in the default config.

We can leave some of the fields as unspecified (or use value zero). The unspecified fields are replaced by the corresponding OT config option definitions OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_DEFAULT to form the default query config. OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_ENABLE is required.

Parameters

dns config [dns-server-IP] [dns-server-port] [response-timeout-ms] [max-tx-attempts] [recursion-desired-boolean] [service-mode]

Examples

dns config fd00::1 1234 5000 2 0

Done

CLI and API References

dns config

Gets the current default query config used by DNS client.

When OpenThread stack starts, the default DNS query config is determined from a set of OT config options such as OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_DEFAULT_SERVER_IP6_ADDRESS, _DEFAULT_SERVER_PORT, _DEFAULT_RESPONSE_TIMEOUT, etc. (see config/dns_client.h for all related config options).

The config includes the server IPv6 address and port, response timeout in msec (wait time to rx response), maximum tx attempts before reporting failure, boolean flag to indicate whether the server can resolve the query recursively or not. OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_ENABLE is required.

Parameters

No parameters.

Examples

dns config
Server: [fd00:0:0:0:0:0:0:1]:1234
ResponseTimeout: 5000 ms
MaxTxAttempts: 2
RecursionDesired: no
ServiceMode: srv
Nat64Mode: allow
Done

CLI and API References

dns resolve

Sends an address resolution DNS query for AAAA (IPv6) record(s) for a given host name.

The aConfig can be NULL. In this case the default config (from otDnsClientGetDefaultConfig() ) will be used as the config for this query. In a non-NULL aConfig, some of the fields can be left unspecified (value zero). The unspecified fields are then replaced by the values from the default config.

Send DNS Query to obtain IPv6 address for given hostname.

The parameters after hostname are optional. Any unspecified (or zero) value for these optional parameters is replaced by the value from the current default config (dns config).

The DNS server IP can be an IPv4 address, which will be synthesized to an IPv6 address using the preferred NAT64 prefix from the network data.

Parameters

dns resolve hostname [dns-server-IP] [dns-server-port] [response-timeout-ms] [max-tx-attempts] [recursion-desired-boolean]

Examples

dns resolve ipv6.google.com
DNS response for ipv6.google.com - 2a00:1450:401b:801:0:0:0:200e TTL: 300
dns resolve example.com 8.8.8.8
Synthesized IPv6 DNS server address: fdde:ad00:beef:2:0:0:808:808
DNS response for example.com. - fd4c:9574:3720:2:0:0:5db8:d822 TTL:20456
Done

CLI and API References

dns service

Starts a DNS service instance resolution for a given service instance.

Is available when OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_SERVICE_DISCOVERY_ENABLE is enabled.

The aConfig can be NULL. In this case the default config (from otDnsClientGetDefaultConfig() ) will be used as the config for this query. In a non-NULL aConfig, some of the fields can be left unspecified (value zero). The unspecified fields are then replaced by the values from the default config.

The function sends queries for SRV and/or TXT records for the given service instance. The mServiceMode field in otDnsQueryConfig determines which records to query (SRV only, TXT only, or both SRV and TXT) and how to perform the query (together in the same message, separately in parallel, or in optimized mode where client will try in the same message first and then separately if it fails to get a response).

The SRV record provides information about service port, priority, and weight along with the host name associated with the service instance. This function DOES NOT perform address resolution for the host name discovered from SRV record. The server/resolver may provide AAAA/A record(s) for the host name in the Additional Data section of the response to SRV/TXT query and this information can be retrieved using otDnsServiceResponseGetServiceInfo() in otDnsServiceCallback. Users of this API MUST NOT assume that host address will always be available from otDnsServiceResponseGetServiceInfo() .

Send a service instance resolution DNS query for a given service instance. Service instance label is provided first, followed by the service name (note that service instance label can contain dot '.' character).

The parameters after service-name are optional. Any unspecified (or zero) value for these optional parameters is replaced by the value from the current default config (dns config).

Parameters

dns service service-instance-label service-name [DNS-server-IP] [DNS-server-port] [response-timeout-ms] [max-tx-attempts] [recursion-desired-boolean]

Examples

CLI and API References

dns servicehost

Starts a DNS service instance resolution for a given service instance, with a potential follow-up address resolution for the host name discovered for the service instance.

Is available when OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_DNS_CLIENT_SERVICE_DISCOVERY_ENABLE is enabled.

The aConfig can be NULL. In this case the default config (from otDnsClientGetDefaultConfig() ) will be used as the config for this query. In a non-NULL aConfig, some of the fields can be left unspecified (value zero). The unspecified fields are then replaced by the values from the default config. This function cannot be used with mServiceMode in DNS config set to OT_DNS_SERVICE_MODE_TXT (i.e., querying for TXT record only) and will return OT_ERROR_INVALID_ARGS.

Behaves similarly to otDnsClientResolveService() sending queries for SRV and TXT records. However, if the server/resolver does not provide AAAA/A records for the host name in the response to SRV query (in the Additional Data section), it will perform host name resolution (sending an AAAA query) for the discovered host name from the SRV record. The callback aCallback is invoked when responses for all queries are received (i.e., both service and host address resolutions are finished).

Send a service instance resolution DNS query for a given service instance with potential follow-up host name resolution. Service instance label is provided first, followed by the service name (note that service instance label can contain dot '.' character).

The parameters after service-name are optional. Any unspecified (or zero) value for these optional parameters is replaced by the value from the current default config (dns config).

Parameters

dns servicehost service-instance-label service-name [DNS-server-IP] [DNS-server-port] [response-timeout-ms] [max-tx-attempts] [recursion-desired-boolean]

history rx

Displays the IPv6 message RX history in table or list format.

Each table or list entry provides:

  • Age: Time elapsed since the command was issued, and given in the format: hours:minutes:seconds:milliseconds
  • Type:
    • IPv6 message type, such as UDP, TCP, HopOpts, and ICMP6 (and its subtype).
    • src: Source IPv6 address and port number.
    • dst: Destination IPv6 address and port number (port number is valid for UDP/TCP, otherwise it is 0).
  • Len: IPv6 payload length (excluding the IPv6 header).
  • Chksum: Message checksum (valid for UDP, TCP, or ICMP6 messages).
  • Sec: Indicates if link-layer security was used.
  • Prio: Message priority. Possible values are low, norm, high, or net (for Thread control messages).
  • RSS: Received Signal Strength (in dBm), averaged over all received fragment frames that formed the message. For TX history, NA (not applicable) is displayed.
  • Dir: Shows whether the message was sent (TX) or received (RX). A failed transmission is indicated with TX-F in table format or tx-success:no in list format. Examples of a failed transmission include a txgetting aborted and no ack getting sent from the peer for any of the message fragments.
  • Neighb: Short address (RLOC16) of the neighbor with whom the message was sent/received. If the frame was broadcast, it is shown as bcast in table format or 0xffff in list format. If the short address of the neighbor is not available, it is shown as unknwn in table format or 0xfffe in list format.
  • Radio: Radio link on which the message was sent/received (useful when OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_MULTI_RADIO is enabled). Can be 15.4, trel, or all (if sent on all radio links).

Parameters

history rx [list] [num-entries]
  • Use the list option to display the output in list format. Otherwise, the output is shown in table format.
  • Use the num-entries option to limit the output to the number of most-recent entries specified. If this option is not used, all stored entries are shown in the output.

CLI and API References

history tx

Displays the IPv6 message TX history in table or list format.

Each table or list entry provides:

  • Age: Time elapsed since the command was issued, and given in the format: hours:minutes:seconds:milliseconds
  • Type:
    • IPv6 message type, such as UDP, TCP, HopOpts, and ICMP6 (and its subtype).
    • src: Source IPv6 address and port number.
    • dst: Destination IPv6 address and port number (port number is valid for UDP/TCP, otherwise it is 0).
  • Len: IPv6 payload length (excluding the IPv6 header).
  • Chksum: Message checksum (valid for UDP, TCP, or ICMP6 messages).
  • Sec: Indicates if link-layer security was used.
  • Prio: Message priority. Possible values are low, norm, high, or net (for Thread control messages).
  • RSS: Received Signal Strength (in dBm), averaged over all received fragment frames that formed the message. For TX history, NA (not applicable) is displayed.
  • Dir: Shows whether the message was sent (TX) or received (RX). A failed transmission is indicated with TX-F in table format or tx-success:no in list format. Examples of a failed transmission include a txgetting aborted and no ack getting sent from the peer for any of the message fragments.
  • Neighb: Short address (RLOC16) of the neighbor with whom the message was sent/received. If the frame was broadcast, it is shown as bcast in table format or 0xffff in list format. If the short address of the neighbor is not available, it is shown as unknwn in table format or 0xfffe in list format.
  • Radio: Radio link on which the message was sent/received (useful when OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_MULTI_RADIO is enabled). Can be 15.4, trel, or all (if sent on all radio links).

Parameters

history tx [list] [num-entries]
  • Use the list option to display the output in list format. Otherwise, the output is shown in table format.
  • Use the num-entries option to limit the output to the number of most-recent entries specified. If this option is not used, all stored entries are shown in the output.

Parameters

No parameters.

Examples

macfilter rss clear
Done

CLI and API References

macfilter rss

Provides the following information:

  • Listing of all the extended addresses where the received signal strength (rss) has been set to be different from the default value. The link quality indicator (lqi) is also shown. The rss and lqi settings map to each other. If you set one, the value of the other gets set automatically. This list of addresses is called the RssIn List. Setting either the rsi or the lqi adds the corresponding extended address to the RssIn list.
  • Default rss: Shows the default values, if applicable, for the rss and lqi settings.

Parameters

No parameters.

Examples

macfilter rss
0f6127e33af6b403 : rss -95 (lqi 1)
Default rss: -50 (lqi 3)
Done

CLI and API References

macfilter rss remove

Removes the specified Extended Address from the RssIn list.

Once removed from the RssIn list, this MAC address will instead use the default rss and lqi settings, assuming defaults have been set. (If no defaults have been set, the over-air signal is used.)

Is available when OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_MAC_FILTER_ENABLE configuration is enabled.

No action is performed if there is no existing entry in the RssIn list matching the specified Extended Address.

Parameters

macfilter rss remove extaddr

If you wish to remove the default received signal strength and link quality indicator settings, use the * as the extaddr. This unsets the defaults but does not remove entries from the RssIn list.

netdata full

Print "yes" or "no" indicating whether or not the "net data full" callback has been invoked since start of Thread operation or since the last time netdata full reset was used to reset the flag. This command requires OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_BORDER_ROUTER_SIGNAL_NETWORK_DATA_FULL. The "net data full" callback is invoked whenever:

  • The device is acting as a leader and receives a Network Data registration from a Border Router (BR) that it cannot add to Network Data (running out of space).
  • The device is acting as a BR and new entries cannot be added to its local Network Data.
  • The device is acting as a BR and tries to register its local Network Data entries with the leader, but determines that its local entries will not fit.

Parameters

No parameters.

Examples

Disabled
Done

CLI and API References

srp client autostart disable

Disables the auto-start mode.

Disabling auto-start mode does not stop a running client. However, the SRP client stops monitoring Thread network data.

Parameters

No parameters.

Examples

srp client autostart disable
Done

CLI and API References

srp client autostart enable

Enables auto-start mode.

When auto-start is enabled, the SRP client monitors Thread network data to discover SRP servers, to select the preferred server, and to automatically start and stop the client when an SRP server is detected.

Three categories of network data entries indicate the presence of an SRP sever, and are preferred in the following order:

  1. Unicast entries in which the server address is included in the service data. If there are multiple options, the option with the lowest numerical IPv6 address is preferred.
  2. Anycast entries that each have a sequence number. The largest sequence number as specified by Serial Number Arithmetic Logic in RFC-1982 is preferred.
  3. Unicast entries in which the server address information is included with the server data. If there are multiple options, the option with the lowest numerical IPv6 address is preferred.

Parameters

No parameters.

srp client host address (set)

Enable auto host address mode or explicitly set the list of host addresses.

Parameters

srp client host address [auto|address...]
  • Use the auto parameter to enable auto host address mode. When enabled, the client automatically uses all preferred Thread netif unicast addresses except for link-local and mesh-local addresses. If there is no valid address, the mesh local EID address gets added. The SRP client automatically re-registers if addresses on the Thread netif are added or removed or marked as non-preferred.
  • Explicitly specify the list of host addresses, separating each address by a space. You can set this list while the client is running. This will also disable auto host address mode.

tcp deinit

Deinitializes this TCP endpoint.

This means that OpenThread no longer keeps track of this TCP endpoint and deallocates all resources it has internally allocated for this TCP endpoint. The application can reuse the memory backing the TCP endpoint as it sees fit.

If it corresponds to a live TCP connection, the connection is terminated unceremoniously (as in otTcpAbort()). All resources the application has provided for this TCP endpoint (linked buffers for the send buffer, memory for the receive buffer, the aEndpoint structure itself, etc.) are immediately returned to the application.

Parameters

No parameters.

CLI and API References

tcp init

Initializes the example TCP listener and the example TCP endpoint provided by the tcp CLI.

Parameters

tcp init [mode] [size]
  • The mode has three possible values:
    • tls: Specifies that the TCP connection between two nodes should also use the TLS protocol on top of TCP. When two nodes communicate over TCP, both nodes must either use TLS or neither node should use TLS because a non-TLS endpoint cannot communicate with a TLS endpoint.
    • linked or circular: Either one of these options means that TLS is not to be used, and the specified buffering type should be used for TCP buffering. The behavior of linked and circular is identical. Examine the code for the differences between these two buffering types. Two endpoints of a TCP connection are not required to use the same buffering type.
  • The size parameter sets the size of the receive buffer to associate with the example TCP endpoint. If left unspecified, the maximum size is used. The maximum size is set in OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_CLI_TCP_RECEIVE_BUFFER_SIZE.

Examples

tcp init tls

timeinqueue

Gets the time-in-queue histogram for messages in the TX queue.

Requires OPENTHREAD_CONFIG_TX_QUEUE_STATISTICS_ENABLE.

Histogram of the time-in-queue of messages in the transmit queue is collected. The time-in-queue is tracked for direct transmissions only and is measured as the duration from when a message is added to the transmit queue until it is passed to the MAC layer for transmission or dropped.

The histogram is returned as an array of uint32_t values with aNumBins entries. The first entry in the array (at index 0) represents the number of messages with a time-in-queue less than aBinInterval. The second entry represents the number of messages with a time-in-queue greater than or equal to aBinInterval, but less than 2 * aBinInterval. And so on. The last entry represents the number of messages with time-in-queue greater than or equal to (aNumBins - 1) * aBinInterval.

The collected statistics can be reset by calling otThreadResetTimeInQueueStat() . The histogram information is collected since the OpenThread instance was initialized or since the last time statistics collection was reset by calling the otThreadResetTimeInQueueStat() .

Pointers aNumBins and aBinInterval MUST NOT be NULL.

Parameters

No parameters.

udp bind

Assigns an IPv6 address and a port to an open socket, which binds the socket for communication. Assigning the IPv6 address and port is referred to as naming the socket.

Parameters

udp bind [netif] ip port
  • netif: The binding network interface, which is determined as follows:
    • No value (leaving out this parameter from the command): Thread network interface is used.
    • -u: Unspecified network interface, which means that the UDP/IPv6 stack determines which network interface to bind the socket to.
    • -b: Backbone network interface is used.
  • ip: IPv6 address to bind to. If you wish to have the UDP/IPv6 stack assign the binding IPv6 address, then you can use the following value to use the unspecified IPv6 address: ::. Each example uses the unspecified IPv6 address.
  • port: UDP port number to bind to. Each of the examples is using port number 1234.

Examples

udp bind :: 1234
Done
udp bind -u :: 1234
Done
udp bind -b :: 1234

CLI and API References

udp connect

Connect a UDP/IPv6 socket.

Parameters

udp connect ip port

The following parameters are required:

  • ip: IP address of the peer.
  • port: UDP port number of the peer. The address can be an IPv4 address, which gets synthesized to an IPv6 address using the preferred NAT64 prefix from the network data. The command returns InvalidState when the preferred NAT64 prefix is unavailable.

Examples

udp connect fdde:ad00:beef:0:bb1:ebd6:ad10:f33 1234
Done
udp connect 172.17.0.1 1234

CLI and API References

udp send

Sends a UDP message using the socket.

Parameters

udp send [ip port] [type] value

The ip and port are optional as a pair, but if you specify one you must specify the other. If ip and port are not specified, the socket peer address is used from udp connect.

  • ip: Destination address. This address can be either an IPv4 or IPv6 address, An IPv4 address gets synthesized to an IPv6 address with the preferred NAT64 prefix from the network data. (If the preferred NAT64 prefix is unavailable, the command returns InvalidState).
  • port: UDP destination port.
  • type/value combinations:
    • -t: The payload in the value parameter is treated as text. If no type value is entered, the payload in the value parameter is also treated as text.
    • -s: Auto-generated payload with the specified length given in the value parameter.
    • -x: Binary data in hexadecimal representation given in the value parameter.
