       from the lavapdu-listen daemon.

       This manual page documents briefly the lavapdu-runner command.

       lavapdu-runner is a daemon which reads the queue created by
       lavapdu-listen and executes the commands on the specified PDU. The
       daemon logs in to the PDU, navigates the menu of the control interface,
       executes the requested command, logs out and moves on to the next
       instruction in the queue.


           Changes the logfile used by lavapdu-runner. By default this would
           be /var/log/lavapdu-runner.log

           Changes the logging level used by lavapdu-runner. By default this
           would be INFO. For more content, use DEBUG.

           With version 0.0.4, lavapdu-runner no longer tries to guess the
           type of interface on the specified PDU as this proved to be

           lavapdu-runner requires that the driver for your PDU is specified
           in the /etc/lavapdu/lavapdu.conf file. Examples are given in the
           default file but you will need to edit this file to specify the PDU
           address (hostname or IP address) and the driver to use for that

           Check the /var/log/lavapdu-runner.log logfile to ensure that the
           driver specified is working with your PDU and restart the
           lavapdu-runner daemon when changing the configuration file.  sudo
           service lavapdu-runner restart

           Note that /etc/lavapdu/lavapdu.conf is in JSON format, use
  to verify the syntax.

           Setting the logging level to DEBUG will help you see what the
           runner is doing - set the level back to INFO once the PDU is
