       openhpid - HPI instance to which multiple clients can connect.


       openhpid -c config_file [OPTION]


       The OpenHPI daemon runs as a background process and accepts connections from remote
       clients that invoke HPI function calls. The daemon wraps the OpenHPI library with a
       sockets-based API that is archicture neutral for all types of clients.

       When you run the daemon, the standard method for locating the OpenHPI configuration file
       is used. However, the daemon will accept a configuration file as a command line option
       (-c) to override the default file.

       A command option (-p)  or environment variable determines the port number the daemon will
       listen on for client connections. The default port is 4743.

       The daemon creates a PID file in the /var/run subdirectory. This directory is only
       writable by the root user. Thus the daemon will fail when run as a normal user if the PID
       file location is not overridden.  To override the PID file location you can use the -f
       command line option.

       The client and the daemon do not have to be on the same hardware architecture.  The daemon
       could be running on a P-series processor and the client running on an x86-series
       processor. The client library and daemon use a marshaling technique to resolve
       architecture and structure padding conflicts. The user does not need to concern themselves
       with architectureal differences between the client and daemon. The one exception to this
       rule is 64-bit architectures.  The client and daemon currently cannot resolve differences
       between 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.


       -f pidfile
           This overrides the default location of the pidfile.

       -n  This forces the daemon to run in the foreground.

       -p port
           This is used to override the port to listen on by the daemon.

       -s seconds
           Read timeout used by the daemon sockets. Default is unlimited.

       -t threads
           Sets the maximum number of connection threads. Default is unlimited.

       -v  Display verbose messages


       All of these environment variables can instead be set in the openhpi.conf configuration
       file, except for OPENHPI_DAEMON_PORT and OPENHPI_CONF.

           The port number the host will listen on for clent connections.  Default port is 4743.

           Valus can be one of: CRITICAL,MAJOR,MINOR,INFORMATIONAL,OK,DEBUG.  Events of this
           severity or higher will be logged to the domain event log.  The default is MINOR.

           Entity path returned (e.g. {SYSTEM_CHASSIS,1}) when saHpiResourceIdGet() is called.

           Maximum number of events allowed in a subscribed session's queue.  Default is 10000.

           Maximum number of events allowed in the domain event log.  Default is 10000

           Set to YES to persist the domain event logs to disk. They will be loaded in case the
           daemon restarts. Default is NO.

           Maximum number of alarms allowed in the domain alarm table.  Default is unlimited.

           Maximum number of user alarms allowed in the domain alarm table.  Default is

           Set to YES to persist the domain alarm tables to disk. They will be loaded in case the
           daemon restarts. Default is NO.

           This is a colon delimited list of directories used when searching for an OpenHPI
           plugin to load. The default is $prefix/lib/openhpi.

           This sets the directory used to store openhpi internal data. The domain event logs and
           alarm tables are saved there (if configured to) along with resource ID to entity path
           mappings.  Default is $prefix/var/lib/openhpi.

           This is another way of telling the daemon where to find the configuration file.
