CNID_METAD(8)			    3.1.12			 CNID_METAD(8)

NAME
       cnid_metad - start cnid_dbd daemons on request

SYNOPSIS
       cnid_metad [-d] [-F configuration file]

       cnid_metad -v | -V

DESCRIPTION
       cnid_metad waits	for requests from afpd to start	up instances of	the
       cnid_dbd	daemon.	It keeps track of the status of	a cnid_dbd instance
       once started and	will restart it	if necessary.  cnid_metad is normally
       started at boot time by netatalk(8) and runs until shutdown.

OPTIONS
       -d
	   cnid_metad will remain in the foreground and	will also leave	the
	   standard input, standard output and standard	error file descriptors
	   open. Useful	for debugging.

       -F configuration	file
	   Use configuration file as the configuration file. The default is
	   @pkgconfdir@/afp.conf.

       -v, -V
	   Show	version	and exit.

CAVEATS
       cnid_metad does not block or catch any signals apart from SIGPIPE. It
       will therefore exit on most signals received. This will also cause all
       instances of cnid_dbd's started by that cnid_metad to exit gracefully.
       Since state about and IPC access	to the subprocesses is only maintained
       in memory by cnid_metad this is desired behaviour. As soon as
       cnid_metad is restarted afpd processes will transparently reconnect.
