NAME

       sssd - System Security Services Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       sssd [options]

DESCRIPTION

       SSSD provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories
       and authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface
       toward the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to multiple
       different account sources as well as D-Bus interface. It is also the
       basis to provide client auditing and policy services for projects like
       FreeIPA. It provides a more robust database to store local users as
       well as extended user data.

OPTIONS

       -d,--debug-level LEVEL
           Debug level to run the daemon with. 0 is the default as well as the
           lowest allowed value, 10 is the most verbose mode. This setting
           overrides the settings from config file. This parameter implies -i.

       debug_timestamps (bool)
           Add a timestamp to the debug messages

           Default: false

       -f,--debug-to-files
           Send the debug output to files instead of stderr. By default, the
           log files are stored in /var/log/sssd and there are separate log
           files for every SSSD service and domain.

       -D,--daemon
           Become a daemon after starting up.

       -i,--interactive
           Run in the foreground, don't become a daemon.

       -c,--config
           Specify a non-default config file. The default is
           /etc/sssd/sssd.conf. For reference on the config file syntax and
           options, consult the sssd.conf(5) manual page.

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

SIGNALS

       SIGTERM/SIGINT
           Informs the SSSD to gracefully terminate all of its child processes
           and then shut down the monitor.

       SIGHUP
           Tells the SSSD to stop writing to its current debug file
           descriptors and to close and reopen them. This is meant to
           facilitate log rolling with programs like logrotate.

       SIGUSR1
           Tells the SSSD to simulate offline operation for one minute. This
           is mostly useful for testing purposes.

       SIGUSR2
           Tells the SSSD to go online immediately. This is mostly useful for
           testing purposes.
