NAME
       sfcbd - Small-Footprint CIM Broker (sfcb)

SYNOPSIS
       sfcbd [options]

DESCRIPTION
       sfcb is a lightweight CIM daemon (aka CIMOM) that responds to CIM client requests for sys-
       tem management data and/or performs system management tasks. sfcb  supports  most  of  the
       standard  CIM  XML over http/https protocol.  It is highly modular, allowing functionality
       to be easily added, removed or customized for different management applications.  sfcb  is
       specifically  targetted for small embedded system that do not have the available CPU, mem-
       ory or disk resources to support a full-blown enterprise-level  CIMOM.	That  said,  sfcb
       runs  very well on a regular Linux/Unix system and supports most of the functions required
       by CIM clients to manage such the system.  Supported CIM operations include:

	      GetClass
	      EnumerateClasses
	      EnumerateClassNames
	      GetInstance
	      DeleteInstance
	      CreateInstance
	      ModifyInstance
	      EnumerateInstances
	      EnumerateInstanceNames
	      InvokeMethod (MethodCall)
	      ExecQuery
	      Associators
	      AssociatorNames
	      References
	      ReferenceNames

       CIM process and lifecycle indications (aka 'events') are also supported.

OPTIONS
       Supported command line options are:

       -c, --config-file=FILE
	      Specify an alternative configuration file.  Default=/etc/sfcb/sfcb.cfg

       -d, --daemon
	      Run sfcbd (and child processes) in the background.

       -h, --help
	      Print help message and exit.

       -k, --color-trace
	      -k, --color-trace Color the trace output of each process

       -s, --collect-stats
	      Turn on runtime statistics collecting. If enabled then various sfcbd  runtime  sta-
	      tistics will be written to ./sfcbStat.  Default is no statistics are collected.

       -t, --trace-components=NUM
	      Activate	component-level  tracing  messages, where NUM is an OR-ed bitmask integer
	      defining which component to trace.  Specifying "-t ?" will list all the  components
	      and their associated integer bitmask.

       -v, --version
	      Prints version information and exits.

CONFIGURATION FILE
       sfcbd  reads  the configuration file /etc/sfcb/sfcb.cfg (or the file specified with the -c
       option) at start up. The configuration file contains option : value pairs, one  per  line.
       For  a complete list of options, see the default configuration file included with the sfcb
       package.

       httpPort
	      Local port that sfcbd should listen to receive HTTP (i.e. insecure)  requests  from
	      CIM clients. Default=5988

       enableHttp
	      Whether sfcb should accept HTTP client connections. Default=true.

       httpProcs
	      Maximum number of simultaneous HTTP client connections before blocking new incoming
	      HTTP requests. Default=8

       httpsPort
	      Local port that sfcbd should listen to receive HTTPS (i.e.  secure)  requests  from
	      CIM clients. Default=5989

       enableHttps
	      Whether sfcb should accept HTTPS client connections. Default=false.

       httpsProcs
	      Maximum  number of simultaneous HTTPS client connections before blocking new incom-
	      ing HTTPS requests. Default=8

       enableInterOp
	      Whether  sfcb  should  provide  the  interop  namespace  for  indication	 support.
	      Default=true

       provProcs
	      Maximum number of simultaneous provider processes. After this point if a new incom-
	      ing request requires loading a new provider, then one  of  the  existing	providers
	      will first be automatically unloaded. Default=32

       doBasicAuth
	      Perform  basic  authentication  on  the client userid (obtained from the HTTP/HTTPS
	      header) before allowing the request. Default=false (i.e. no  client  authentication
	      performed).

       basicAuthLib
	      Name   of   the	local	library  to  call  to  authenticate  the  client  userid.
	      Default=sfcBasicAuthentication

       useChunking
	      Tell sfcbd to use HTTP/HTTPS 'chunking' to return large volumes of response data to
	      the  client  in 'chunks', rather than buffering the data and sending it back all at
	      once. Default=true

       keepaliveTimeout
	      Specify the maximum time in seconds an sfcb HTTP	process  will  wait  between  two
	      requests	on  one  connection before terminating. Setting it to 0 will disable HTTP
	      keep-alive. Default=0

       keepaliveMaxRequest
	      Specify the maximum number of consecutive request on one connection.  Setting it to
	      0 will effectively disable HTTP keep-alive. Default=10

       registrationDir
	      Specify  the registration directory, which contains the provider registration data,
	      the staging area and the static repository.  Default=/var/lib/sfcb/registration

       providerDirs
	      A space separated list of directories where sfcb is looking for provider libraries.
	      Default=/usr/lib /usr/lib/cmpi /usr/lib64 /usr/lib64/cmpi

       providerSampleInterval
	      The  interval  in  seconds  at  which  the  provider  manager  is checking for idle
	      providers. Default: 30

       providerTimeoutInterval
	      The interval in seconds before an idle provider gets unloaded by the provider  man-
	      ager. Default: 60

       providerAutoGroup
	      If  set to true, all providers residing in the same shared library will be executed
	      in the same process unless another group has been specified in the provider  regis-
	      tration file. Default: true

       sslCertificateFilePath
	      Specify the name of the file containing the server's certificate.  The file must be
	      in PEM format. This file is only required if enableHttps is set to  true.  Default=
	      /etc/sfcb/server.pem

       sslKeyFilePath
	      Specify  the  name of the file containing the private key for the server's certifi-
	      cate. The file must be in PEM format and may not be passphrase-protected. This file
	      is only required if enableHttps is set to true. Default=/etc/sfcb/file.pem

       sslClientTrustStore
	      Specify  the  name  of  the  file or directory containing either the CA certificate
	      issuing client certificates or self-signed certificates of the clients.  This  set-
	      ting is only required if sslClientCertificate is set to accept or require.

	      If a file, it must be in PEM format.

	      If  a  directory, it must be in "hash format": each file in the directory should be
	      named hash.0, where hash is the output of  openssl  x509	-hash.	See  the  -CApath
	      option  in  verify(1)  from the openssl package for more information about the hash
	      format.

	      Default=/etc/sfcb/client.pem

       sslClientCertificate
	      Specify the way sfcb handles client certificate based  authentication.  If  set  to
	      ignore  it will not request a certificate from the client. If set to accept it will
	      request a certificate from the client but not fail if the  client  doesn't  present
	      one.  If	set to require it will refuse the client connection if the client doesn't
	      present a certificate. Default=ignore

       certificateAuthLib
	      Name of the local library to call for client-certificate based user authentication.
	      Called only if sslClientCertificate is not set to ignore. Default=sfcCertificateAu-
	      thentication

       traceLevel
	      Specify the trace level for sfcb. Can be overriden by setting environment  variable
	      SFCB_TRACE_LEVEL. Default:0.

       traceMask
	      Specify  the  trace  mask  for  sfcb.  Can  be overriden by the command line option
	      --trace-components. Default: 0.

       traceFile
	      Specify the trace file for sfcb. Can be overriden by setting  environment  variable
	      SFCB_TRACE_FILE. Default: stderr.

ENVIRONMENT
       SFCB_PAUSE_PROVIDER
	      Specifies  the name of the provider to pause after first being loaded to facilitate
	      attaching a runtime debugger to the provider's process for debugging purposes.

       SFCB_PAUSE_CODEC
	      Specifies the name of the sfcb codec (currently only "http") to pause  after  first
	      being started to facilitate attaching a runtime debugger to the process.

       SFCB_TRACE
	      Specifies the level of trace/debug messages for sfcb.  Valid values are 0 (no trace
	      messages), or 1 (key trace messages only) to 4 (all messages). A default value of 1
	      will be assumed, if this variable is not set.
	      [Note:  SFCB_TRACE level is used in conjunction with sfcb's component-level tracing
	      to control the level of detail of trace messages to display within each component]

       SFCB_TRACE_FILE
	      By default sfcb trace messages are written to  STDERR.   Setting	this  envorinment
	      variable causes the trace messages to be written to a file instead.

       SFCB_TRAP
	      If  set  this  environment  variable enables trap interrupts on x86 platforms to be
	      generated by sfcb in special situations.
	      [Note: not currently ever used]

       SBLIM_TRACE
	      Specifies the level of trace/debug messages for SBLIM providers.	Valid values  are
	      0 (no trace messages), or 1 (key trace messages only) to 4 (all messages).
	      [Note: this only applies to SBLIM providers written with explicit trace messages in
	      their source code.]

       SBLIM_TRACE_FILE
	      By default SBLIM provider trace messages	are  written  to  STDERR.   Setting  this
	      envorinment variable causes the trace messages to be written to a file instead.

FILES
       /etc/sfcb/sfcb.cfg
	      Default sfcb configuration file.

       /etc/sfcb/server.pem
	      SSL server certificate for sfcb.

       /etc/sfcb/file.pem
	      SSL private key file for sfcb.

       /etc/sfcb/client.pem
	      SSL client certificate / trust store for sfcb.

LIBRARIES
       /usr/lib/libsfc* /usr/lib64/libsfc*
	      Binaries for sfcb runtime libraries.

       /usr/lib/cmpi/* /usr/lib64/cmpi/*
	      Binaries for providers.
