lfc-dli - start the LFC Data Location Interface server
[ -l log_file
command starts the LFC Data Location Interface server. This
command is usually executed at system startup time (/etc/rc.local
This will create a pool of threads, look for requests and pass them to the
LFC. When a request has been completed, the thread becomes idle until it is
allocated to another request.
All error messages and statistical information are kept in a log.
The Data Location Interface server listen port number can be defined on client
hosts and on the server itself in either of the following ways:
setting an environment variable DLI_PORT
an entry in /etc/shift.conf
If none of these methods is used, the default port number is taken from the
definition of DLI_PORT in dli_server.h.
In the log each entry has a timestamp. For each user request there is one
message giving information about the requestor (hostname) and one message
DLI98 giving the request itself. The completion code of the request is also
- -l log_file
- Specifies a different path for the LFC Data Location
Interface server log file. The special value syslog will send the
log messages to the system logger syslogd.
