NAME
       powerman.conf - configuration file for PowerMan

DESCRIPTION
       The  powerman.conf  file	 typically  includes one or more of the	remote
       power controller	(RPC) device files provided in the /usr/local/etc/pow-
       erman  directory;  sets	a few global options; instantiates RPC devices
       with unique names, hostnames, and ports;	and maps node names  to	 RPC's
       and plug	numbers.

       Network-attached	RPC's are instantiated with device lines of the	form:

	      device "name" "type" "host:port"

       Serial-attached RPC's are instantiated with device lines	of the form:

	      device "name" "type" "special file" "flags"

       where special file is the full path to a	tty device, and	flags is a se-
       rial parameter specification in a form similar to that  used  by	 lilo,
       e.g.   "9600,8n1".  RPC's that are accessed via coprocesses are instan-
       tiated as follows:

	      device "name" "type" "process |&"

       where process is	the full path to a process whose standard  output  and
       input  will be controlled by powerman, e.g. "/usr/bin/conman -Q -j rpc0
       |&".

EXAMPLE
       The following example is	a 16-node cluster that uses two	8-plug Baytech
       RPC-3 remote power controllers.

       include "/usr/local/etc/powerman/baytech.dev"  #	include	def for	"baytech" RPC

       tcpwrappers yes			    # enable TCP wrappers

       # listen	"0.0.0.0:10101"		    # uncomment	to listen on all interfaces

       # Alias example - alias can be used in target specifications
       alias "pengra_service" "pengra[0-1]"
       alias "pengra_compute" "pengra[2-15]"

       # Power controller: device <name> <type>	<hostname:port>	[<flags>]
       device "pow0" "baytech" "pow0:23"  # instantiate	pow0
       device "pow1" "baytech" "pow1:23"  # instantiate	pow1

       # Plugs:	node <name> <device> [<plug>]
       node "pengra[0-7]" "pow0" "[1-8]"  # map	pengra0...pengra7 to pow0 plug 1-8
       node "pengra[8-15]" "pow1" "[1-8]" # map	pengra8...pengra15 to pow1 plug	1-8
