arc-infoindex-server — ARC Information Index Server

Description

The arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations about local information systems and other arc-infoindex-servers creating an hierarcical information system for discovering Grid resources

Synopsis

arc-infoindex-relay -c conffile -f fifo

Options

-c conffile
The configuration file, usually /etc/arc.conf
-f fifo
The FIFO on which the server will accept queries

Extended Description

arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations with information about local information systems and other arc-infoindex-servers. It also responds to status queries returning the list of registered resources and their registration status (valid, invalid or purged).

Queries are accepted on a FIFO and are normally forwarded from a slapd server through an arc-infoindex-relay process. The first line of a query should contain the name of a FIFO on which the response should be returned. The remaining part of the query should be a Globus MDS query in LDIF format.

To stop arc-infoindex-server write the special query "STOP" to the server FIFO.

Files

/etc/arc.conf

Several resource indices can be kept in the same server. Each of them should have an [infosys/index] block in the configuration file. The set of resoures that are allowed to register to each index can be limited using allowreg keys.

Here is an example configuration:

[infosys/index/Sweden]
allowreg="*.uu.se:2135"
allowreg="*.lu.se:2135"
allowreg="*.liu.se:2135"
allowreg="*.umu.se:2135"
allowreg="*.chalmers.se:2135"
allowreg="*.kth.se:2135"
