NAMEand - auto nice daemon
SYNOPSISand [-htvsxf] [-i interval] [-c /path/to/and.conf] [-d /path/to/and.priorities]
VERSIONThis manual page documents and version 1.2.2.
COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS-c /path/to/and.conf Specifies the configuration file. If this flag is omitted, /etc/and.conf is used instead. -d /path/to/and.priorities Specifies the priority database file. If this flag is omitted, /etc/and.priorities is used instead. -h Produces a short help text. -i interval Sets the interval between nice level checks. This flag overrides the interval specified in the configuration file, if any. The default interval of 60 seconds is used if neither -i nor an interval directive in the configuration file is given. -s Log to stdout. Without this switch, logging goes to syslog (normal operations) or ./debug.and (test mode). Useful for debugging config files. -t Run in test mode only, i.e. don't really renice or kill anything. In this mode, logging goes into ./debug.and instead of syslog. -v Increase verbosity. For maximum verbosity, this flag can be specified multiple times. Be warned that this will blow up your log files, so you should use it in test mode only. -x Run in full operational mode, i.e. really renice or kill things. This is the default. -f Foreground mode. Don't daemonize.
SIGNALSOn kill -HUP the auto nice daemon will reload its configuration file and priority database.
FILES/etc/and.conf General configuration file. Stores default nice level, default interval, the "time zones" and the database lookup affinity. /etc/and.priorities The priority database (in plain text). Contains the (user, group, command, nicelevels) tuples. Both files have their own manual pages. ./debug.and Contains logging and status information for debugging purposes. Used in test mode only.
