ctdbd - The CTDB cluster daemon


ctdbd [OPTION...]


ctdbd is the main CTDB daemon.

Note that ctdbd is not usually invoked directly. It is invoked via ctdbd_wrapper(1) or via the initscript.

See ctdb(7) for an overview of CTDB.


-i, --interactive

Enable interactive mode. This will make ctdbd run in the foreground and not detach from the terminal. In this mode ctdbd will log to stderr.

By default ctdbd will detach itself and run in the background as a daemon, logging to the configured destination.
