cnid_metad: start cnid_dbd daemons on request
cnid_metad - start cnid_dbd daemons on request
cnid_metad [-d] [-h
hostname] [-p port] [-u user] [-g group] [-s cnid_dbdpathname]
- cnid_metad will remain in the foreground and will also leave the standard input, standard output and standard error file descriptors open. Useful for debugging.
- Use hostname as the network interface for requests as opposed to the default localhost .
- Use port as the port number for reqests. Default is 4700.
- Switch to the userid of user before serving requests. This userid will be inherited by all cnid_dbd daemon processes started.
- Switch to the groupid of group before serving requests. This groupid will be inherited by all cnid_dbd daemon processes started. Both user and group must be specified as strings.
-s cnid_dbd pathname
- Use cnid_dbd pathname as the pathname of the executeable of the cnid_dbd daemon. The default is /usr/sbin/cnid_dbd.
The number of cnid_dbd subprocecesses is currently limited to 512.
cnid_metad does not block or catch any signals apart from SIGPIPE. It will therefore exit on most signals received. This will also cause all instances of cnid_dbd's started by that cnid_metad to exit gracefully. Since state about and IPC access to the subprocesses is only maintained in memory by cnid_metad this is desired behaviour. As soon as cnid_metad is restarted afpd processes will transparently reconnect.
