AUTOBENCHD(1)                                                    AUTOBENCHD(1)



NAME
       autobenchd - distributed autobench daemon

SYNOPSIS
       autobenchd [--port port] [--bindaddr bindaddr] [--verbose] [--debug]

DESCRIPTION
       autobenchd listens on the port and IP address specified on the command
       line (defaulting to port 4600 and INADDR_ANY if the command line
       options are omitted), and waits for commands from autobench_admin.
       When it receives these commands, it conducts a benchmark using httperf
       with the arguments specified by autobench_admin, parses the httperf
       results and returns a summary to autobench_admin.  autobench_admin
       collates the results from several instances of autobenchd running on
       different machines, and writes the collated results to a file for
       analysis.

OPTIONS
       --port port
              Listen on port port. Defaults to 4600 if omitted.

       --bindaddr bindaddr
              Bind to the address bindaddr, which may be given as either an IP
              address or hostname.  INADDR_ANY may be specified as `0.0.0.0ยด.
              Defaults to INADDR_ANY if omitted.

       --verbose
              Enable verbose output, which logs progress to stderr (perhaps
              --speak would be a better name, since autobenchd is completely
              silent in normal operation).

       --debug
              Send additional debugging output to stderr, including the raw
              results returned by httperf.

EXAMPLE
       autobenchd --port 1234 --bindaddr 123.123.123.213 --verbose
              Starts autobenchd on port 1234, bound to 123.123.123.213, with
              progress reporting enabled.
