kloned - klone daemon
kloned [-d] [-f file] [-F] [-h] [-i] [-u]
kloned merges a web server (or CGI to be plugged into other CGI-compliant web servers), its compressed configuration, together with the static and dynamic web contents into a single executable file.
The process of creating the kloned executable, by embedding the web content into the server process, is documented in the klone(1) manual page.
- Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes.
- -f config_file
- Load further configuration parameters from the external file config_file besides those found in the embedded configuration file sup://etc/kloned.conf. Parameters in conf_file override the values of those with the same name in the embedded configuration file.
- If specified, this parameter causes the main kloned process to not detach from the terminal. HTTP/HTTPS requests are served iteratively: no child is forked to handle the client connection.
- Display a summary of command-line options and exit.
- Install kloned service and exit (only available on Windows).
- Uninstall kloned service and exit (only available on Windows).
- Print klone version and exit.
kloned depends on sup://etc/kloned.conf for the configuration of its instances (clones). Additional configuration can be supplied via an external file (the -f command line flag): see kloned.conf(5) for details on available configuration parameters and their respective values.
KLone is a product targeted for embedded systems, especially those with limited or no disk resources; as such it tries to reduce logging activity to a minumum (at its best, zero logging).
The number and nature of diagnostics available depends on the debug level defined at compile-time. If you are having problems, compile the KLone application with NDEBUG unset, configure the syslog daemon appropriately, run your application and peruse the log files. Most messages are reasonably self-explanatory. At this stage your best bet is still to grep the source code and inspect the conditions that gave rise to the diagnostics you are seeing.
kloned is a service/daemon, as such it will bail out with an EXIT_SUCCESS exit code only if explicitly requested to terminate (i.e. SIGTERM or SIGINT), otherwise it will exit with EXIT_FAILURE.
The following environment variables affect the execution of kloned:
- If set, kloned assumes it has been run as a CGI script by an external web server.
To shut down a user's kloned process it is recommended that SIGKILL not be used, except as a last resort. The safe way to terminate a kloned is to send it a SIGTERM or SIGINT signal and wait for it to die on its own.
