       chirp_server - create a Chirp user-level filesystem


       chirp_server [options]


       Starts a Chirp server which allows the sharing of data with friends and colleagues without
       requiring any administrator privileges.  Chirp provides an  RPC  network  interface  to  a
       "backend" filesystem which can be the local filesystem or even the Hadoop HDFS filesystem.
       Chirp supports flexible and robust ACL management of data.

       For    complete    details    with    examples,    see    the    Chirp    User's    Manual


       -A, --default-acl=<file>
              Use this file as the default ACL.

               Directories without an ACL inherit from parent directories.

       -a, --auth=<method>
              Enable this authentication method.

        -b, --background
              Run as daemon.

       -B, --pid-file=<file>
              Write PID to file.

        -C, --no-core-dump
              Do not create a core dump, even due to a crash.

       -c, --challenge-dir=<dir>
              Challenge directory for unix filesystem authentication.

       -d, --debug=<flag>
              Enable debugging for this sybsystem

        -E, --parent-death
              Exit if parent process dies.

       -e, --parent-check=<time>
              Check for presence of parent at this interval. (default is 300s)

       -F, --free-space=<size>
              Leave this much space free in the filesystem.

       -G, --group-url=<url>
              Base url for group lookups. (default: disabled)

        -h, --help
              Give help information.

       -I, --interface=<addr>
              Listen only on this network interface.

       -M, --max-clients=<count>
              Set the maximum number of clients to accept at once. (default unlimited)

       -n, --catalog-name=<name>
              Use this name when reporting to the catalog.

       -o, --debug-file=<file>
              Write  debugging  output  to  this  file.  By  default, debugging is sent to stderr
              (":stderr"). You may specify logs to be sent to stdout (":stdout") instead.

       -O, --debug-rotate-max=<bytes>
              Rotate debug file once it reaches this size.

       -P, --superuser=<user>
              Superuser for all directories. (default is none)

       -p, --port=<port>
              Listen on this port (default is 9094, arbitrary is 0)

        --project-name <name>
              Project name this Chirp server belongs to.

       -Q, --root-quota=<size>
              Enforce this root quota in software.

        -R, --read-only
              Read-only mode.

       -r, --root=<url>
              URL of storage directory, like file://path or hdfs://host:port/path.

       -s, --stalled=<time>
              Abort stalled operations after this long. (default is 3600s)

       -T, --group-cache-exp=<time>
              Maximum time to cache group information. (default is 900s)

       -t, --idle-clients=<time>
              Disconnect idle clients after this time. (default is 60s)

       -U, --catalog-update=<time>
              Send status updates at this interval. (default is 5m)

       -u, --advertize=<host>
              Send status updates to this host. (default is

        -v, --version
              Show version info.

       -W, --passwd=<file>
              Use alternate password file for unix authentication

       -w, --owner=<name>
              The name of this server's owner.  (default is username)

       -y, --transient=<dir>
              Location of transient data (default is pwd).

       -Z, --port-file=<file>
              Select port at random and write it to this file.  (default is disabled)

       -z, --unix-timeout=<time>
              Set max timeout for unix filesystem authentication. (default is 5s)


CATALOG_HOST Hostname of catalog server (same as -u).

       •   TCP_LOW_PORT Inclusive low port in range used with -Z.

       •   TCP_HIGH_PORT Inclusive high port in range used with -Z.


       On success, returns zero.  On failure, returns non-zero.


       To start a Chirp server with a local root directory:

               % chirp_server -r file:///tmp/foo

       Setting various authentication modes:

               % chirp_server -a hostname -a unix -a ticket -r file:///tmp/foo
