Name

       ganeti-rapi - Ganeti remote API daemon

Synopsis

       ganeti-rapi [-d] [-f] [-p PORT] [-b ADDRESS] [-i INTERFACE]
       [--no-ssl] [-K SSL_KEY_FILE] [-C SSL_CERT_FILE]
       [--require-authentication]

DESCRIPTION

       ganeti-rapi is the daemon providing a remote API for Ganeti clusters.

       It  is  automatically  started  on the master node, and by default it uses SSL encryption.
       This can be disabled by passing the --no-ssl option, or alternatively the certificate used
       can be changed via the -C option and the key via the -K option.

       The  daemon  will  listen  to the "ganeti-rapi" TCP port, as listed in the system services
       database, or if not defined, to port 5080 by default.   The  port  can  be  overridded  by
       passing  the  -p  option.   The  -b  option  can be used to specify the address to bind to
       (defaults to 0.0.0.0).  Note that if you specify the address,  the  watcher  needs  to  be
       informed  about  it using its option --rapi-ip, otherwise it will not be able to reach the
       RAPI interface and will attempt to restart it all the time.  Alternatively to setting  the
       IP with --b, the -i option can be used to specify the interface to bind do.

       See the Ganeti remote API documentation for further information.

       Requests are logged to /var/log/ganeti/rapi-daemon.log, in the same format as for the node
       and master daemon.

ACCESS CONTROLS

       Most  query  operations  are  allowed  without  authentication.   Only  the   modification
       operations  require  authentication,  in  the  form  of basic authentication.  Specify the
       --require-authentication command line flag to always require authentication.

       The users and their rights are defined in the /var/lib/ganeti/rapi/users file.  The format
       of this file is described in the Ganeti documentation (rapi.html).

       Report   bugs   to  project  website  (http://code.google.com/p/ganeti/)  or  contact  the
