 +A unique name can be set for sockets to simplify the selection of the socket for sending out. For example, the rr and path modules can use the socket name to advertise it in header URI parameter and use it as a shortcut to select the corresponding socket for routing subsequent requests.
 +
 +The name has to be provided as a string enclosed in between quotes after the **name** identifier.

 +===== Command Line Parameters =====
 +
 +Kamailio can be started with a set of command line parameters, providing more flexibility to control what is doing at runtime. Some of them can be quite useful when running on containerised environments.
 +
 +To see the the available command line parameters, run **kamailio -h**:
 +
 +<code>
 +# kamailio -h
 +
 +version: kamailio 5.4.0-dev4 (x86_64/darwin) 8c1864
 +Usage: kamailio [options]
 +Options:
 +    -a mode      Auto aliases mode: enable with yes or on,
 +                  disable with no or off
 +    --alias=val  Add an alias, the value has to be '[proto:]hostname[:port]'
 +                  (like for 'alias' global parameter)
 +    -A define    Add config pre-processor define (e.g., -A WITH_AUTH,
 +                  -A 'FLT_ACC=1', -A 'DEFVAL="str-val"')

 +                  auto-probing procedure even if  OS allows
 +    -c           Check configuration file for syntax errors
 +    -d           Debugging mode (multiple -d increase the level)
 +    -D           Control how daemonize is done:

 +                  -DD..do not daemonize creator;
 +                  -DDD..daemonize (default)
 +    -e           Log messages printed in terminal colors (requires -E)
 +    -E           Log to stderr
 +    -f file      Configuration file (default: /usr/local/etc/kamailio/kamailio.cfg)

 +    -h           This help message
 +    --help       Long option for `-h`
 +    -I           Print more internal compile flags and options
 +    -K           Turn on "via:" host checking when forwarding replies
 +    -l address   Listen on the specified address/interface (multiple -l
 +                  mean listening on more addresses). The address format is
 +                  [proto:]addr_lst[:port][/advaddr],
 +                  where proto=udp|tcp|tls|sctp,
 +                  addr_lst= addr|(addr, addr_lst),
 +                  addr=host|ip_address|interface_name and
 +                  advaddr=addr[:port] (advertised address).
 +                  E.g: -l localhost, -l udp:127.0.0.1:5080, -l eth0:5062,
 +                  -l udp:127.0.0.1:5080/1.2.3.4:5060,
 +                  -l "sctp:(eth0)", -l "(eth0, eth1, 127.0.0.1):5065".
 +                  The default behaviour is to listen on all the interfaces.
 +    --loadmodule=name load the module specified by name
 +    --log-engine=log engine name and data
 +    -L path      Modules search path (default: /usr/local/lib64/kamailio/modules)

 +    --modparam=modname:paramname:type:value set the module parameter
 +                  type has to be 's' for string value and 'i' for int value,

 +    -M nr        Size of private memory allocated, in Megabytes
 +    -n processes Number of child processes to fork per interface
 +                  (default: 8)
 +    -N           Number of tcp child processes (default: equal to `-n')
 +    -O nr        Script optimization level (debugging option)
 +    -P file      Create a pid file
 +    -Q           Number of sctp child processes (default: equal to `-n')
 +    -r           Use dns to check if is necessary to add a "received="
 +                  field to a via
 +    -R           Same as `-r` but use reverse dns;
 +                  (to use both use `-rR`)
 +    --server-id=num set the value for server_id
 +    --subst=exp set a subst preprocessor directive
 +    --substdef=exp set a substdef preprocessor directive
 +    --substdefs=exp set a substdefs preprocessor directive
 +    -S           disable sctp
 +    -t dir       Chroot to "dir"
 +    -T           Disable tcp
 +    -u uid       Change uid (user id)
 +    -v           Version number
 +    --version    Long option for `-v`
 +    -V           Alternative for `-v`
 +    -x name      Specify internal manager for shared memory (shm)
 +                  - can be: fm, qm or tlsf
 +    -X name      Specify internal manager for private memory (pkg)
 +                  - if omitted, the one for shm is used
 +    -Y dir       Runtime dir path
 +    -w dir       Change the working directory to "dir" (default: "/")
 +    -W type      poll method (depending on support in OS, it can be: poll,
 +                  epoll_lt, epoll_et, sigio_rt, select, kqueue, /dev/poll)
 +</code>
 +
 +==== Log Engine CLI Parameter ====
 +
 +The **--log-engine** parameter allows to specify what logging engine to be used, which is practically about the format of the log messages. If not set at all, then Kamailio does the classic style of line-based plain text log messages.
 +
 +The value of this parameter can be **--log-engine=name** or **--log-engine=name:data**.
 +
 +The name of the log engine can be:
 +
 +  * **json** - write logs in structured JSON format
 +    * the **data** for **json** log engine can be a set of character flags:
 +      * **a** - add log prefix as a special field
 +      * **A** - do not add log prefix
 +      * **c** - add Call-ID (when available) as a dedicated JSON attribute
 +      * **M** - strip EOL ('\n') from the value of the log message field
 +      * **N** - do not add EOL at the end of JSON document
 +
 +Example of JSON logs when running Kamailio with "**--log-engine=json:M**" :
 +
 +<code>
 +{ "idx": 1, "pid": 18239, "level": "DEBUG", "module": "maxfwd", "file": "mf_funcs.c", "line": 74, "function": "is_maxfwd_present", "logprefix": "{1 1 OPTIONS 715678756@192.168.188.20} ", "message": "value = 70 " }
 +
 +{ "idx": 1, "pid": 18239, "level": "DEBUG", "module": "core", "file": "core/socket_info.c", "line": 644, "function": "grep_sock_info", "logprefix": "{1 1 OPTIONS 715678756@192.168.188.20} ", "message": "checking if host==us: 9==9 && [127.0.0.1] == [127.0.0.1]" }
