evmchmgr - Event Manager channel manager
/usr/sbin/evmchmgr [-c config_file] [-l log_file]
Sets the configuration file to config_file. The default
is /etc/evmchannel.conf. Sets message output to log_file.
The default is stderr. When the channel manager starts it
renames any previous message file by appending to its
name, and creates a new file.
The EVM channel manager is started automatically by the
EVM daemon, and usually should not be run as a stand-alone
program. It reads a set of channel definitions from the
channel configuration file and executes the commands
defined as the monitor and cleanup functions for any channel,
at the configured intervals. There is no requirement
for any channel to be configured with either of the periodic
functions; the channel manager ignores any channels
which have neither.
By default, the channel manager reads its configuration
from /etc/evmchannel.conf. The -c option can be used to
override this. If the channel configuration file is
changed while the channel manager is running, the evmreload
-c command should be used to instruct it to reconfigure
The channel manager reconfigures itself when evmreload -c
is run, or upon receipt of a SIGHUP signal.
The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
An error occurred.
