But... is there any way to control radvd depending on uplink
availability? I've got two networks each with a single IPv6 uplink
tunnel and I would like radvd to stop sending advertisments (or start
sending ones with zero times) when the tunnels stop working. It's
definitely routing daemon's job but in setups like these radvd is a de
facto poor man's routing daemon.
