globus-personal-gatekeeper - Manage a user's personal gatekeeper daemon


globus-personal-gatekeeper [-help ] [-usage ] [-version ] [-versions ] [-list ]
[-directory CONTACT]


The globus-personal-gatekeeper command is a utility which manages a gatekeeper and job
manager service for a single user. Depending on the command-line arguments it will operate
in one of several modes. In the first set of arguments indicated in the synopsis, the
program provides information about the globus-personal-gatekeeper command or about
instances of the globus-personal-gatekeeper that are running currently. The second set of
arguments indicated in the synopsis provide control over starting a new
globus-personal-gatekeeper instance. The final set of arguments provide control for
terminating one or more globus-personal-gatekeeper instances.

The -start mode will create a new subdirectory of $HOME/.globus and write the
configuration files needed to start a and write the configuration files needed to start a
globus-gatekeeper daemon which will invoke the globus-job-manager service when new
authenticated connections are made to its service port. The globus-personal-gatekeeper
then exits, printing the contact string for the new gatekeeper prefixed by GRAM contact:
to standard output. In addition to the arguments described above, any arguments described
in globus-job-manager(8) can be appended to the command-line and will be added to the job
manager configuration for the service started by the globus-gatekeeper.

The new globus-gatekeeper will continue to run in the background until killed by invoking
globus-personal-gatekeeper with the -kill or -killall argument. When killed, it will kill
the globus-gatekeeper and globus-job-manager processes, remove state files and
configuration data, and then exit. Jobs which are running when the personal gatekeeper is
killed will continue to run, but their job directory will be destroyed so they may fail in
the LRM.

The full set of command-line options to globus-personal-gatekeeper consists of:

-help, -usage
Print command-line option summary and exit

Print software version

Print software version including DiRT information

Print a list of all currently running personal gatekeepers. These entries will be
printed one per line.

-directory CONTACT
Print the configuration directory for the personal gatekeeper with the contact string

Print additional debugging information when starting a personal gatekeeper. This
option is ignored in other modes.

Start a new personal gatekeeper process.

-jmtype LRM
Use LRM as the local resource manager interface. If not provided when starting a
personal gatekeeper, the job manager will use the default fork LRM.

Write audit report files to AUDIT_DIRECTORY. If not provided, the job manager will not
write any audit files.

-port PORT
Listen for gatekeeper TCP/IP connections on the port PORT. If not provided, the
gatekeeper will let the operating system choose.

$HOME will be used. If this option is not present, the job manager will not write any
log files. will be used. If this option is not present, the job manager will not write
any log files.

Try to use the SEG mechanism to receive job state change information, instead of
polling for these. These require either the system administrator or the user to run an
instance of the globus-job-manager-event-generator program for the LRM specified by
the -jmtype option.

Write gatekeeper accounting entries to ACCOUNTING_FILE. If not provided, no accounting
records are written.
