ruspawn is used to spawn a server using configuration settings provided in a file, as arguments, or over a file descriptor.
When a server is spawned, a reaper process is also started which is responsible for removing the associated socket file. A normal kill signal sent to either the server or reaper process will result in a cleanup.
usage: ruspawn (-c <name>=<value>|-f <path>|--fd <fd>) [...] [-- ...]
Spawn a russ server. Using the configuration, a socket file is
created and the listener socket is passed to the server. The path
the socket file is output to stdout.
ruspawn is different from rustart in the following ways. If
main:addr (the socket file path) is not specified, a path is
dynamically chosen and used to set main:addr. A reaper process is
started to automatically cleanup the socket file when the server
exits. If the server or the repear are signaled, they both will be
terminated and the socket file cleaned up.
ruspawn is the preferred way to start a server.
Set configuration attribute.
Load configuration file.
Load configuration from file descriptor.
-- ... Arguments to pass to the server program.
ruspawn is almost never invoked by hand. Instead the
rubb tool is used to set up configurations and start servers.
To spawn a personal instance of the debug server (assuming
ruspawn -f /etc/russ/conf/debug.conf -c main:addr=/tmp/mydebug
debug.conf is used as the starting point
main:addr is overridden with
ruspawn to automatically select a path for the socket file:
ruspawn -f /etc/russ/conf/debug.conf -c main:addr=
main:addr is set to empty to clear the setting
- an empty
main:addr or non-existent
main:addr setting tells
ruspawn to automatically select a socket file path based on the name of the configuration file
