NAME

       arc-infoindex-relay - ARC Information Index Relay Helper

DESCRIPTION

       The   arc-infoindex-relay   command  is  used  internally  by  the  ARC
       Information System to relay queries and  responses  between  the  slapd
       server and the arc-infoindex-server

SYNOPSIS

       arc-infoindex-relay server-fifo

ARGUMENTS

       server-fifo
              The FIFO on which the arc-infoindex-server accepts queries

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       arc-infoindex-relay  acts  as a bridge between the slapd server and the
       arc-infoindex-server in the NorduGrid ARC Information system. For  each
       index  served  by  the  arc-infoindex-server  a  shell backend database
       should be configured in the slapd configuration.

       Here is a sample configuration:

       database  shell
       suffix    "Mds-Vo-name=Sweden,o=Grid"
       bind      /usr/sbin/arc-infoindex-relay /var/run/arc/infosys/giis-fifo
       add       /usr/sbin/arc-infoindex-relay /var/run/arc/infosys/giis-fifo
       search    /usr/sbin/arc-infoindex-relay /var/run/arc/infosys/giis-fifo
       access to * by * write

       When a query for the configured  database  is  received  by  the  slapd
       server,  the  server will call out to the arc-infoindex-relay. The arc-
       infoindex-relay will then open a unique return FIFO for this query  and
       then  forward  the  query  and  the name of the return FIFO to the arc-
       infoindex-server through the configured  server  FIFO.  When  the  arc-
       infoindex-server  has  processed the query it will return the result to
       the arc-infoindex-relay using the return FIFO. The  arc-infoindex-relay
       then  closes  the  return  FIFO  and forwards the response to the slapd
       server.
