NAME

       grandvizier - DNSSEC-Tools dtrealms GUI

SYNOPSIS

         grandvizier <realms-file>

DESCRIPTION

       THIS NEEDS MAJOR EDITTING!!!

       Warning:  This is an early prototype.  Consider it to be beta quality, if not alpha.

       grandvizier is a GUI tool for use with monitoring and controlling the DNSSEC-Tools
       dtrealms program.  It displays information on the current state of the realms dtrealms is
       managing.  The user may control some aspects of dtrealms's execution using grandvizier
       menu commands.

       grandvizier creates a window in which to display information about each realms.  (These
       realms are those in dtrealms's current realms file.) For each realm, it displays the realm
       name and the count of zones in each of these four states:  normal, ZSK rollover, KSK
       rollover, and KSK phase 6 wait state.  As the rollover status of the zones in each realm
       changes, grandvizier will update its display for that realm.  Inactive realms, realms
       listed in the realms file but which are not in currently being run, are displayed but have
       no useful information to display.

       The user may also hide realms from the display.  These realms, if in the active state,
       will continue to execute; however, their information will not be displayed.  Display state
       for each realm will persist across grandvizier executions.

       Menu commands are available for some control over dtrealms.  Display and execution options
       for grandvizier are also available through menu commands.  More information about the menu
       commands is available in the MENU COMMANDS section.

       grandvizier is only intended to be started by dtrealms, not directly by a user.  There are
       two ways to have dtrealms start grandvizier.  First, realmctl may be given the -display
       option.  Second, the -display option may be given on dtrealms' command line.

OPTIONS

       grandvizier takes the following options:

       -display
           Tells dtrealms to execute grandvizier as a child process.

       -maxrealms
           Tells grandvizier how many realms to display.

       -Version
           Displays the version information for grandvizier and the DNSSEC-Tools package.

       -help
           Displays a usage message and exits.

SCREEN LAYOUT

       The grandvizier window is laid out as a series of "stripes".  The top stripe contains
       status information about dtrealms, the second stripe contains column headers, and the bulk
       of the window consists of realm stripes.  The list below provides more detail on the
       contents of each stripe.

       See the ROW COLORS section for a discussion of the colors used for the zone stripes.

       ·   dtrealms information stripe

           The information stripe contains five pieces of information:  dtrealms's current realms
           file, the count of rolling zones, the count of stopped zones, the count of zones to be
           displayed, and the amount of time dtrealms waits between processing its queue.
           Coincidentally, that last datum is also the amount of time between grandvizier screen
           updates.

       ·   column headers stripe

           This stripe contains the column headers for the columns of each realm stripe.

       ·   realm stripes

           Each realm managed by dtrealms (i.e., every realm in the current realms file) will
           have a realm stripe which describes that realm's current state.  The stripe is divided
           into two sections:  realm identification and the realm's zone counts.

           The realm identification section contains the name of the realm and the realm's
           rollrec file.

           The realm's zone counts section contains the number of zones in normal state, ZSK
           rollover, KSK rollover, and KSK phase 6 wait state.

           See the ROW COLORS section for a discussion of the colors used for the realm stripes.

ROW COLORS

       The default grandvizier configuration displays each realm in its own row with a rotating
       set of colors.  The rows alternate with blue, red, and green, as defined in the X11
       rgb.txt file.  Row coloring can be turned off (and on) with configuration options and menu
       commands.

MENU COMMANDS

       A number of menu commands are available to control the behavior of grandvizier and to send
       commands to dtrealms.  These commands are discusses in this section.

   File Menu
       The commands in this menu are basic GUI commands.

       ·   Halt Dtrealms

           dtrealms's execution is halted immediately.  As a result, grandvizier's execution will
           also be halted.

       ·   Quit

           grandvizier will stop execution.

   Options Menu
       The commands in this menu control the appearance and behavior of grandvizier.

       ·   Row Colors (toggle)

           This menu item is a toggle to turn on or off the coloring of realm stripes.  If row
           coloring is turned off, realm stripes will all be the same color.  If row coloring is
           turned on, realm stripes will be displayed in varying colors.  See the ROW COLORS
           section for a discussion of row coloring.

       ·   Inactive Realms Display (toggle)

           This menu item is a toggle to turn on or off the display of inactive realms.  If
           display is turned off, realm stripes for inactive realms will not be displayed.  If
           display is turned on, realm stripes for all realms will be displayed.

       ·   Modification Commands (toggle)

           In some situations, it may be desirable to turn off grandvizier' ability to send
           commands to dtrealms.  This menu item is a toggle to turn on or off this ability.

       ·   Font Size

           This menu item allows selection of font size of text displayed in the main window.

           Normally, changing the font size causes the window to grow and shrink as required.
           However, on Mac OS X there seems to be a problem when the size selected increases the
           window size to be greater than will fit on the screen.  If the font size is
           subsequently reduced, the window size does not shrink in response.

       ·   Realms to Display

           This menu item allows selection of the number of realms to be displayed in the main
           window.

   General Control Menu
       The commands in this menu are GUI interfaces for the realmctl commands related to general
       realm management.

       ·   Stop Selected Realm

           The selected realm will be moved to the inactive state.  This only has an effect on
           active realms.

           A realm may be selected by clicking on its realm stripe.  If this command is selected
           without a realm having been selected, a dialog box is displayed from which a currently
           active realm may be chosen.

       ·   Stop All Realms

           All realms will be moved to the inactive state.  This has no effect on currently
           inactive realms.

       ·   Restart Selected Inactive Realm

           The selected realm will be moved from the inactive state to the active state.  The
           realm will enter the active state at the same point from which it entered the inactive
           state.  This only has an effect on inactive realms.

           A realm may be selected by clicking on its realm stripe.  If this command is selected
           without a realm having been selected, a dialog box is displayed from which a currently
           inactive realm may be chosen.

       ·   Restart All Stopped Realms

           All realms will be moved from the inactive state to the roll state.  The realms will
           enter the roll state at the same point from which they entered the inactive state.
           This has no effect on currently active realms.

       ·   DS Published for All Zones in Selected Realm

           This command is used to indicate that all the zones in KSK rollover phase 6 in the
           selected realm have new DS records published by their parents.  It moves all these
           realms from KSK phase 6 to KSK phase 7.  There is no effect on realms not in KSK
           rollover phase 6.

   Display Menu
       The commands in this menu provide control over what is being displayed.

       The realmstripe commands allow all, some, or none of the realm stripes to be displayed.
       Undisplayed active realms will continue to be active, but they will do so without the
       grandvizier window indicating this.

       ·   Realm Selection

           A dialog box is displayed that holds a list of the realms currently managed by
           dtrealms.  The user may select which realms should be displayed by clicking on the
           realm's checkbox.  Realms with a selected checkbox will be displayed; realms without a
           selected checkbox will not be displayed.

       ·   Refresh Display

           Refresh the grandvizier display.  The display will automatically refresh after a
           certain number of updates; this command forces it to happen immediately upon
           invocation.

   Help Menu
       The commands in this menu provide assistance to the user.

       ·   Help

           Display a window containing help information.

CONFIGURATION FILE

       Several aspects of grandvizier' behavior may be controlled from configuration files.
       Configuration value may be specified in the DNSSEC Tools configuration file or in a more
       specific rc.grandvizier.  The system-wide grandvizier configuration file is in the DNSSEC-
       Tools configuration directory and is named grandvizier.conf.  Multiple rc.grandvizier
       files may exist on a system, but only the one in the directory in which grandvizier is
       executed is used.

       The following are the available configuration values:

           colors              Turn on/off use of colors on realm stripes.
           fontsize            The size of the font in the output window.
           inactivecolor       The background color used for inactive zones.
           maxrealms           The number of realms to display.
           modify              Turn on/off execution of dtrealms modification commands.
           showinactive        Turn on/off display of inactive zones.

       The rc.grandvizier file is only searched for in the directory in which grandvizier is
       executed.  The potential problems inherent in this may cause these grandvizier-specific
       configuration files to be removed in the future.

       This file is in the "field value" format, where field specifies the output aspect and
       value defines the value for that field.  The following are the recognized fields:

       Empty lines and comments are ignored.  Comment lines are lines that start with an
       octothorpe ('#').

       Spaces are not allowed in the configuration values.

       Choose your inactivecolors carefully.  The only foreground color used is black, so your
       background colors must work well with black.

REQUIREMENTS

       grandvizier is implemented in Perl/Tk, so both Perl and Perl/Tk must be installed on your
       system.

WARNINGS

       grandvizier has several potential problems that must be taken into account.

       development environment
           grandvizier was developed and tested on a single-user system running X11 using a
           relatively small number of zones.  While it works fine in this environment, it has not
           been run on a system with many users or in a situation where the system console hasn't
           been in use by the grandvizier user.
