       ganeti-noded - Ganeti node daemon


       ganeti-noded [-f] [-d]


       The  ganeti-noded  is the daemon which is responsible for the node functions in the Ganeti

       By default, in order to be able to support features such  as  node  powercycling  even  on
       systems with a very damaged root disk, ganeti-noded locks itself in RAM using mlockall(2).
       You can disable this feature by passing in the --no-mlock to the daemon.

       For testing purposes, you can give the -f option and the program  won't  detach  from  the
       running terminal.

       Debug-level message can be activated by giving the -d option.

       Logging to syslog, rather than its own log file, can be enabled by passing in the --syslog

       The ganeti-noded daemon listens to port 1811 TCP, on all interfaces, by default. The  port
       can  be overridden by an entry the services database (usually /etc/services) or by passing
       the -p option. The -b option can be used to specify the address to bind  to  (defaults  to

       Ganeti  noded  communication  is  protected  via SSL, with a key generated at cluster init
       time. This can be  disabled  with  the  --no-ssl  option,  or  a  different  SSL  key  and
       certificate can be specified using the -K and -C options.

       The  role  of the node daemon is to do almost all the actions that change the state of the
       node. Things like  creating  disks  for  instances,  activating  disks,  starting/stopping
       instance and so on are done via the node daemon.

       Also,  in  some  cases  the  startup/shutdown  of  the master daemon are done via the node
       daemon, and the cluster IP address is also added/removed to the master node via it.

       If the node daemon is stopped, the instances are not affected, but  the  master  won't  be
       able to talk to that node.

       Currently  the  master-node  RPC is done using a simple RPC protocol built using JSON over
