bos_getrestart - Displays the automatic restart times for server processes
bos getrestart -server
bos getr -s
< cell name
The bos getrestart command displays two restart times from the
file on the server machine named by the
- The general restart time at which the BOS Server
process automatically restarts itself and all processes marked with status
"Run" in the BosConfig file. The default is Sunday at
- The binary restart time at which the BOS Server
automatically restarts any process for which the time stamp on the binary
file in the /usr/lib/openafs directory is later than the last
restart time for the process. The default is 5:00 a.m. Use the bos
getdate command to list a binary file's timestamp, and the
-long flag to the bos status command to display a process's
most recent restart time.
Use the bos setrestart
command to set the restart times.
- -server <machine name>
- Indicates the server machine for which to display the
restart times. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either
fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see
- -cell <cell name>
- Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine
this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
- Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to
the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For
more details, see bos(8).
- Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The bos command
interpreter presents the ticket to the BOS Server during mutual
authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or
-noauth options. For more details, see bos(8).
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid
options are ignored.
The output consists of two lines:
Server <machine_name> restarts at <time>
Server <machine_name> restarts for new binaries at <time>
Possible values for <time> include:
- "never", indicating that the BOS Server never
performs that type of restart.
- "now", indicating that the BOS Server performs
that type of restart only each time it restarts.
- A specified day and time, indicating that the BOS Server
performs that type of restart once per week. Example: "sun 4:00
- A specified time, indicating that the BOS Server performs
that type of restart once per day. Examples: "11:00 pm",
The following example displays the restart times for the machine
% bos getrestart db2.abc.com
Server db2.abc.com restarts at sun 4:00 am
Server db2.abc.com restarts for new binaries at 2:15 am
In the following example, the issuer abbreviates the machine name
"fs1.abc.com" to "fs1", relying on the cell's name server
to resolve the name. The output echoes the abbreviated form.
% bos getrestart fs1
Server fs1 restarts at sat 5:00 am
Server fs1 restarts for new binaries at 11:30 pm
