       iceccd - Icecream daemon


       iceccd [-b env-basedir] [--cache-limit MB] [-d] [-l log-file] [-m max-processes] [-N
              hostname] [-n node-name] [--nice level] [--no-remote] [-s scheduler-host] [-u user]


       The Icecream daemon has to run on all nodes being part of the Icecream compile cluster. It
       receives compile jobs and executes them in a chroot environment. The compile clients  send
       their  compile  environment the first time they send a job to a particular daemon, so that
       the environment of the daemon does not have to match the one of the client.

       The daemon also has to run on clients sending compile jobs to the Icecream network.  If  a
       node should be able to send compile jobs, but never receive any, start the daemon with the
       option -m 0.

       All Icecream daemons need to have contact to the Icecream  scheduler  which  controls  the
       distribution  of  data  between compile nodes. Normally the daemon will automatically find
       the right scheduler. If this is not the case you can explicitly specify the  name  of  the
       Icecream network and the host running the scheduler.


       -b, --env-basedir env-basedir
              Base  directory  for storing compile environments sent to the daemon by the compile

       --cache-limit MB
              Maximum size in Mega Bytes of cache used to store compile environments  of  compile

       -d, --daemonize
              Detach daemon from shell.

       -h, --help
              Print help message and exit.

       -l, --log-file log-file
              Name of file where log output is written to.

       -m, --max-processes max-processes
              Maximum number of compile jobs started in parallel on machine running the daemon.

       -N hostname
              The name of the icecream host on the network.

       -n, --name, --netname net-name
              The  name  of the icecream network the daemon should connect to.  There has to be a
              scheduler running for the network under the same network name.

       --nice level
              The level of niceness to use. Default is 5.

              Prevents jobs from other nodes being scheduled on this one.

       -s, --scheduler-host scheduler-host
              Name of host running the scheduler for the network the daemon  should  connect  to.
              This  option  might  help  if  the  scheduler  cannot broadcast its presence to the
              clients due to firewall settings or similar reasons, when this is enabled scheduler
              should use --persistent-client-connection.

       -u, --user-uid user
              Specify the system user used by the daemon, which must be different than ‘root’. If
              not specified, the daemon defaults to the ‘icecc’  system  user  if  available,  or
              ‘nobody’ if not.

       -v, -vv, -vvv
              Control verbosity of daemon. The more v the more verbose.
