PIDSTATD(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	   PIDSTATD(1)

NAME
       pidstatd	- Determine if process ID is running for Perl IPC::Locker

SYNOPSIS
       pidstatd	[ --help ] [ --port=port ] [ --version ]

DESCRIPTION
       Pidstatd	will start a UDP daemon.  The daemon responds to requests that
       contain a PID with a packet indicating the PID and if the PID currently
       exists.

       The Perl	IPC::Locker package optionally uses this daemon	to break locks
       for PIDs	that no	longer exists.

ARGUMENTS
       --help
	   Displays this message and program version and exits.

       --nofork
	   For debugging, prevents the daemon from creating additional
	   processes and from going into the background.  This allows messages
	   to appear on	stdout,	and ctrl-C to stop the daemon.

       --port
	   Specifies the port number to	be used.

       --version
	   Displays program version and	exits.

PERFORMANCE
       As pidstatd is a	UDP daemon, some requests may be dropped by the
       operating system, but this assists in graceful degradation under	heavy
       loads.  Pidstatd	has been tested	to perform well	handling to above
       13,000 requests per second on a 2GHz AMD	Operton	server.

DISTRIBUTION
       The latest version is available from CPAN and from
       <https://www.veripool.org/ipc-locker>.
