       ace_netsvcs — ACE network services driver.


       ace_netsvcs [OPTION ...]


       ace_netsvcs  is  a  driver  to start ACE network services. Currently, libnetsvcs provides:
       Naming Service, Time Service,  Token  Service,  Server  Logging  Service,  Client  Logging
       Service, Logging Strategy Service.


       -f svc.conf
                 Specifies  a svc.conf configuration file name other than the default one. Can be
                 specified multiple times to use multiple files.

       -d        Turn on debugging mode.

       -n        Explicitly disables the use of static  services.  This  flag  overrides  the  @a
                 ignore_static_svcs parameter value.

       -p pathname
                 Specifies a pathname which is used to store the process id.

       -s signal Specifies  a  signal  number  other  than  SIGHUP to trigger reprocessing of the
                 configuration file(s). Ignored for platforms that do  not  have  POSIX  signals,
                 such as Windows.

       -y        Explicitly  enables  the  use  of  static  services.  This flag overrides the @a
                 ignore_static_svcs parameter value.

       -S directive
                 Specifies a service directive string.  Enclose the string in quotes  and  escape
                 any  embedded  quotes with a backslash. This option specifies service directives
                 without the need for a configuration file.

       -b        Option to indicate that we should be a daemon. Note that  when  this  option  is
                 used,  the  process  will be daemonized before the service configuration file(s)
                 are read. During daemonization, (on POSIX systems) the current directory will be
                 changed  to  "/"  so  the  caller should either fully specify the file names, or
                 execute a @c chroot() to the appropriate directory.  @sa ACE::daemonize().

       -k point  Specifies the rendezvous point to use for the ACE distributed logger.


       ace_netsvcs -f /usr/share/ace-netsvcs/svc.conf
                 Starts ACE network services using example configuration.

       ace_netsvcs -S 'dynamic Name_Server Service_Object * netsvcs:_make_ACE_Name_Acceptor() "-p
                 Starts ACE Naming service using command line configuration.
