PRM_startup - Start up PRM node managers and system managers
PRM_startup [ -S ] [ -c cfile ] [ -f hfile ] [ -n nargs ] [
-s sargs ]
Using rsh(1), PRM_startup starts up system and node managers
on the specified hosts after appropriately initializing the
environment on the hosts. Hostnames can be specified in a
file that is passed as an argument with the -f option, or
entered when PRM_startup prompts for hostnames. A list of
hostnames, managers started on them and their process ids
are written to a configuration file. Typically, PRM_startup
is run only once, since node and system managers run for-
ever, until shut down by PRM_shutdown(8), or killed by a
host system crash, PRM_kill(8), or the Unix kill(1) command.
PRM_startup redirects the stdout and stderr of each node
manager process it starts to a file /tmp/nodemngr_log.pid on
the local host, where pid is the process id of the process.
If a node manager cannot be started or exits after startup,
an error message can usually be found in these files.
-S Run silently. Do not print informational messages. By
default PRM_startup prints the names of hosts as it
starts up a node or system manager on them.
Write configuration information to file cfile. Prints
hostname, type of manager and its process identifier to
cfile. Default configuration file is PRM_config.pid,
where pid is the process identifier of the invoking
Read hostnames from file hfile. Hostnames in hfile
must be separated by spaces or newlines. By default, a
node manager will be started on a specified host,
unless the hostname is preceded by a -s, in which case
a system manager will be started on that host. If the
-f option is not present, PRM_startup runs interac-
tively, prompting for hostnames.
Pass nargs as command-line arguments to every node
manager process that is started. nargs must be enclosed
in quotes. For command line options to nodemngr see
Pass sargs as command-line arguments to every system
manager process that is started. sargs must be enclosed
in quotes. For command line options to sysmngr see
