NAME
       ace_netsvcs — ACE network services driver.

SYNOPSIS
       ace_netsvcs [OPTION ...]

DESCRIPTION
       ace_netsvcs is a driver to start ACE network services. Currently,
       libnetsvcs provides: Naming Service, Time Service, Token Service,
       Server Logging Service, Client Logging Service, Logging Strategy
       Service.


OPTIONS
       -f svc.conf
                 Specifies a svc.conf configuration file name other than the
                 default one. Can be specified multiple times to use multiple
                 files.


       -d        Turn on debugging mode.


       -n        Explicitly disables the use of static services. This flag
                 overrides the @a ignore_static_svcs parameter value.


       -p pathname
                 Specifies a pathname which is used to store the process id.


       -s signal Specifies a signal number other than SIGHUP to trigger
                 reprocessing of the configuration file(s). Ignored for
                 platforms that do not have POSIX signals, such as
                 Windows.


       -y        Explicitly enables the use of static services. This flag
                 overrides the @a ignore_static_svcs parameter value.


       -S directive
                 Specifies a service directive string.  Enclose the string in
                 quotes and escape any embedded quotes with a backslash. This
                 option specifies service directives without the need for a
                 configuration file.


       -b        Option to indicate that we should be a daemon. Note that when
                 this option is used, the process will be daemonized before
                 the service configuration file(s) are read. During
                 daemonization, (on POSIX systems) the current directory will
                 be changed to "/" so the caller should either fully specify
                 the file names, or execute a @c chroot() to the appropriate
                 directory.  @sa ACE::daemonize().


       -k point  Specifies the rendezvous point to use for the ACE distributed
                 logger.


EXAMPLES
       ace_netsvcs -f /usr/share/ace-netsvcs/svc.conf
                 Starts ACE network services using example configuration.


       ace_netsvcs -S 'dynamic Name_Server Service_Object *
       netsvcs:_make_ACE_Name_Acceptor() "-p 20006"'
                 Starts ACE Naming service using command line configuration.
