ModemManager – modem management daemon


ModemManager [–version] | [–help]

ModemManager [–debug] [–log-level=] [–log-file=] [–timestamps] [–relative-timestamps]


The ModemManager daemon provides a unified high level API for communi‐
cating with (mobile broadband) modems. While the basic commands are
standardized, the more advanced operations (like signal quality moni‐
toring while connected) varies a lot.

ModemManager is a system daemon and is not meant to be used directly
from the
command line.


The following options are supported:

Print the ModemManager software version and exit.

–help Print ModemManager’s available options and exit.

Runs ModemManager with “DEBUG” log level and without daemoniz‐
ing. This is useful for debugging, as it directs log output to
the controlling terminal in addition to syslog.

Sets how much information ModemManager sends to the log destina‐
tion (usually syslog’s “daemon” facility). By default, only
informational, warning, and error messages are logged. Given
level must be one of “ERR”, “WARN”, “INFO” or “DEBUG”.

Specify location of the file where ModemManager will dump its
log messages, instead of syslog.

Include absolute timestamps in the log output.

Include timestamps, relative to the start time of the daemon, in
the log output.
