       siad - Sia Daemon


       siad version
       siad modules
       siad [OPTIONS]


       The Sia daemon, siad, is a background process that does all of the heavy lifting for Sia.
       The daemon downloads the blockchain, uploads files, manages redundancy, monitors hosts for
       uptime, to name a few of the many tasks that it performs.  The daemon is composed of
       modules, and each modules provides a set of primary functions on the network.

       -M, --modules="cghrtw"

              Use the -M or --modules flag to only run specific modules. Modules are independent
              components of Sia. This flag should only be used by developers or people who want
              to reduce overhead from unused modules. Modules are specified by their first
              letter. If the -M or --modules flag is not specified the default
              modules are run. The default modules are:
              gateway, consensus set, host, miner, renter, transaction pool, wallet
              This is equivalent to:
                   siad -M cghmrtw
              Below is a list of all the modules available.

              Gateway (g):
              The gateway maintains a peer to peer connection to the network and enables other
              modules to perform RPC calls on peers.  The gateway is required by all other
              Example: siad -M g

              Consensus Set (c):
              The consensus set manages everything related to consensus and keeps the blockchain
              in sync with the rest of the network.  The consensus set requires the gateway.
              Example:siad -M gc

              Transaction Pool (t):
              The transaction pool manages unconfirmed transactions.  The transaction pool
              requires the consensus set.
              Example:siad -M gct

              Wallet (w):
              The wallet stores and manages siacoins and siafunds.  The wallet requires the
              consensus set and transaction pool.
              Example: siad -M gctw

              Renter (r):
              The renter manages the user's files on the network.  The renter requires the
              consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.
              Example: siad -M gctwr

              Host (h):
              The host provides storage from local disks to the network. The host negotiates file
              contracts with remote renters to earn money for storing other users' files.  The
              host requires the consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.
              Example: siad -M gctwh

              Miner (m):
              The miner provides a basic CPU mining implementation as well as an API for external
              miners to use.  The miner requires the consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.
              Example: siad -M gctwm

              Explorer (e):
              The explorer provides statistics about the blockchain and can be queried for
              information about specific transactions or other objects on the blockchain.  The
              explorer requires the consenus set.
              Example: siad -M gce

           enable profiling

           location of the profiling directory

           which port the gateway listens on

       -d, --sia-directory=""
           location of the sia directory
