All of the basic SLP properties, such as net.slp.isDA and net.slp.DAHeartBeat, are named in the following format.
SLP behavior is defined by the value of a property or a combination of properties in the slp.conf file. Properties are structured as key-value pairs in the SLP configuration file. As shown in the following example, a key-value pair consists of a property name and an associated setting.
The key for each property is the property name. The value sets the numeric (distance or time), true/false state, or string value parameters for the property. Property values consist of one of the following data types:
True/False setting (Boolean)
List of integers
List of strings
If the value defined is not allowed, the default value for that property name is used. In addition, an error message is logged using syslog.
