     gnunet-arm — control GNUnet services


     gnunet-arm [-c FILENAME | --config=FILENAME] [-d | --delete] [-e | --end] [-E | --no-stderr]
                [-h | --help] [-i SERVICE | --init=SERVICE] [-I | --info]
                [-k SERVICE | --kill=SERVICE] [-l FILENAME | --logfile=FILENAME]
                [-L LOGLEVEL | --loglevel=LOGLEVEL] [-m | --monitor] [-O | --no-stdout]
                [-q | --quiet] [-r | --restart] [-s | --start] [-T -DELAY | --timeout=TIMEOUT]
                [-v | --version]


     gnunet-arm can be used to start or stop GNUnet services, including the ARM service itself.
     The ARM service is a supervisor for GNUnet's service processes.  ARM starts services on-
     demand or as configured and restarts them if they crash.

     -c FILENAME | --config=FILENAME
             Use the configuration file FILENAME.

     -d | --delete
             Delete configuration file and directory on exit.

     -e | --end
             Shutdown all GNUnet services (including ARM itself).  Running "gnunet-arm -e" is the
             usual way to shutdown a GNUnet peer.

     -E | --no-stderr
             Don't let gnunet-arm inherit stderr (standard error).

     -h | --help
             Print short help on options.

     -i SERVICE | --init=SERVICE
             Starts the specified SERVICE if it is not already running.  More specifically, this
             makes the service behave as if it were in the default services list.

     -I | --info
             List all running services.

     -k SERVICE | --kill=SERVICE
             Stop SERVICE if it is running.  While this will kill the service right now, the
             service may be restarted immediately if other services depend on it (the service is
             then started 'on-demand').  If the service used to be a 'default' service, its
             default-service status will be revoked.  If the service was not a default service,
             it will just be (temporarily) stopped, but could be re-started on-demand at any

     -l FILENAME | --logfile=FILENAME
             Write logs to FILENAME.

     -L LOGLEVEL | --loglevel=LOGLEVEL
             Use LOGLEVEL for logging.  Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.

     -m | --monitor
             Monitor service activity of ARM.  In this mode, the command will not terminate until
             the user presses CTRL-C (thus sending SIGTERM or SIGINT).

     -O | --no-stdout
             Don't let gnunet-arm inherit standard output

     -q | --quiet
             Don't print status messages.

     -r | --restart
             Stop and start all GNUnet default services.

     -s | --start
             Start all GNUnet default services on this system (and also ARM).  Naturally, if a
             service is demanded by a default service, it will then also be started.  Running
             "gnunet-arm -s" is the usual way to start a GNUnet peer.

     -T -DELAY | --timeout=DELAY
             Exit with error status if operation does not finish after DELAY, provided in number
             of microseconds.

     -v | --version
             Print GNUnet version number.


     Start the gnunet-arm for the user:

           gnunet-arm -s

     Stop the gnunet-arm for the user:

           $ gnunet-arm -e
