oddjobd: privileged operations for unprivileged processes
SYNOPSISoddjobd [-n] [-d] [-p pidfile] [-c configfile] [-S] [-t timeout]
DESCRIPTIONThe oddjobd daemon provides the com.redhat.oddjob service on the system-wide message bus. Each facility which oddjobd provides is provided as a separate D-Bus method.
Any method can be invoked by name by any user, subject to access controls enforced by both D-Bus and oddjobd.
Most methods are implemented as helper programs.
- Do not fork and become a daemon process.
- Print debugging messages to stderr. Implies -n.
- -p pidfile
- Store the daemon's process ID in the named file.
- -c /etc/oddjobd.conf
- Read the daemon's configuration from the named file.
- Connect to the session bus instead of the system bus. Used for testing only.
- -t timeout
Specifies the amount of time which will pass between attempts to reconnect to
the bus if oddjobd is disconnected for any reason. If the specified timeout is
above 5, then oddjobd will first attempt to
connect up to 10 times at intervals of
5 seconds. The default reconnect timeout is
Reload the configuration. Client requests which are in the process of being
served will run to completion even if the newly-loaded configuration does not
include the service, object, interface, or method.
