grid: register - registers a resource with a known registry(4)


grid/register [ option ... ] { command ... }


Register takes a program which serves a Styx (see intro(5)) namespace on stdin and registers it with a known registry(4). It then marshals the service by listening for incoming connections and exporting the namespace across them. Register prints out various status messages to stdout in the form which may be read by grid-monitor(1).


-u maxusers
Specifies the maximum number of connections to the resource at any one time. If not given, any number of connections are allowed.
-e n
Tells register to exit after the last connection has gone away. N is a threshold value, so that register will not exit upon the last connection going away until the number of incoming connections has reached at least n.
-a 'name=value'
Specifies the name and value of an attribute to be listed as belonging to the resource when registered with the registry(4).
-A address
Allows the user to specify the address for the service to announce on. Address takes the form tcp!machine!port
Includes the amount of free main memory as part of the attributes list.
