NAME

lvsd - daemon to control the Red Hat clustering services.  

SYNOPSIS

lvsd [-c cfgfile|--configfile=cfgfile] [-n|--nodaemon] [--nofork] [-t|--test-start] [-?|--help] [--usage] [--version]  

DESCRIPTION

lvsd reads in the cluster configuration file lvs.cf, calls ipvsadm to maintain the IPVS routing table, and nanny to perform monitoring services.

lvsd is normally started by pulse although it can be run as a command line tool. Similarly, the configuration file that tells lvsd what to do is normally edited by piranha, but it can be manually edited.

All activity from lvsd is logged to syslog (when lvsd is running as a daemon).  

OPTIONS

-c cfgfile|--configfile=cfgfile
Normally, lvsd uses lvs.cf as its configuration file, but this can be overridden and another file can be used.
-n|--nodaemon
Normally, lvsd runs as a daemon, however using this option, lvsd runs in the foreground. When running in this mode, all its output is sent to STDOUT instead of syslog.
--nofork
Don't fork, but do perform disassociate.
-t|--test-start
Running lvsd is test mode allows the user to monitor what lvsd would actually do. This is only useful during debugging.
-?|--help
Shows a verbose usage listing.
--usage
Outputs a terse argument summary.
--version
Displays program version.
