NAME

       arc-infoindex-server - ARC Information Index Server

DESCRIPTION

       The  arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations about local information
       systems  and  other  arc-infoindex-servers  creating   an   hierarcical
       information system for discovering Grid resources

SYNOPSIS

       arc-infoindex-relay -c conffile -f fifo

OPTIONS

       -c conffile
              The configuration file, usually /etc/arc.conf

       -f fifo
              The FIFO on which the server will accept queries

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations with information about local
       information systems and other arc-infoindex-servers. It  also  responds
       to  status queries returning the list of registered resources and their
       registration status (valid, invalid or purged).

       Queries are accepted on a FIFO and are normally forwarded from a  slapd
       server  through  an  arc-infoindex-relay  process.  The first line of a
       query should contain the name of a FIFO on which the response should be
       returned.  The remaining part of the query should be a Globus MDS query
       in LDIF format.

       To stop arc-infoindex-server write the  special  query  "STOP"  to  the
       server FIFO.

FILES

       /etc/arc.conf
              Several resource indices can be kept in the same server. Each of
              them should have an [infosys/index] block in  the  configuration
              file.  The  set of resoures that are allowed to register to each
              index can be limited using allowreg keys.

              Here is an example configuration:

              [infosys/index/Sweden]
              allowreg="*.uu.se:2135"
              allowreg="*.lu.se:2135"
              allowreg="*.liu.se:2135"
              allowreg="*.umu.se:2135"
              allowreg="*.chalmers.se:2135"
              allowreg="*.kth.se:2135"
