NAME

cgrulesengd - control group rules daemon

 

SYNOPSIS

cgrulesengd [options]

 

DESCRIPTION

cgrulesengd is a daemon, which distributes processes to control groups. When any process changes its effective UID or GID, cgrulesengd inspects list of rules loaded from cgrules.conf file and moves the process to the appropriate control group.

The list of rules is read during the daemon startup and are cached in daemon's memory. The daemon reloads the list of rules when it receives SIGUSR2 signal.

The daemon opens a standard unix socket to receive 'sticky' requests from cgexec tool.

 

OPTIONS

-h|--help
Display help.
-f <path>|--logfile=<path>
Write log messages to the given log file. When '-' is used as <path>, log messages are written to the standard output. Both '-f' and '-s' can be used together then logs are sent to both destinations.
-s[facility]|--syslog=[facility]
Write log messages to syslog. The default facility is DAEMON. Both '-f' and '-s' can be used together then logs are sent to both destinations.
-n|--nodaemon
Don't fork the daemon, stay in foreground.
-v|--verbose
Display more log messages. This option can be used twice to enable even more log messages.
-q|--quiet
Display less log messages. This option can be used twice to enable even less log messages and log errors only.
-Q|--nolog
Disable logging.
-d|--debug
Equivalent to '-nvvf -', i.e. don't fork the daemon, display all log messages and write them to the standard output.
-u <user>|--socket-user=<user>
-g <group>|--socket-group=<group> Set owner of cgrulesengd socket. It assumes that cgexec tool runs with proper suid permissions so it can write to the socket when cgexec --sticky is used.
