oddjobd(8)						      System Manager's Manual							oddjobd(8)

NAME
oddjobd - privileged operations for unprivileged processes SYNOPSIS
oddjobd [-n] [-d] [-p pidfile] [-c configfile] [-S] [-t timeout] DESCRIPTION
The oddjobd daemon provides the com.redhat.oddjob service on the system-wide message bus. Each facility which oddjobd provides is provided as a separate D-Bus method. Any method can be invoked by name by any user, subject to access controls enforced by both D-Bus and oddjobd. Most methods are implemented as helper programs. OPTIONS
-n Do not fork and become a daemon process. -d Print debugging messages to stderr. Implies -n. -p pidfile Store the daemon's process ID in the named file. -c /etc/oddjobd.conf Read the daemon's configuration from the named file. -S Connect to the session bus instead of the system bus. Used for testing only. -t timeout Specifies the amount of time which will pass between attempts to reconnect to the bus if oddjobd is disconnected for any reason. If the specified timeout is above 5, then oddjobd will first attempt to connect up to 10 times at intervals of 5 seconds. The default reconnect timeout is 30 seconds. SIGNALS
SIGHUP Reload the configuration. Client requests which are in the process of being served will run to completion even if the newly-loaded configuration does not include the service, object, interface, or method. SEE ALSO

oddjob_request [-s service] [-o object] [-i interface] [-S] [ [request [arg1 ...]] | -I ] DESCRIPTION
The oddjob_request application is a simple oddjob client application which can be used to invoke a particular method provided by the odd- jobd server. If no request is given as a command-line argument, oddjob_request will attempt to invoke the list method, which should list all methods for which the invoking user is authorized. ARGUMENTS
-S Connect to the session bus instead of the system bus. This option is primarily intended for use in testing. com.redhat.oddjob. -s service The object is provided by the named service instead of com.redhat.oddjob. -o object Invoke a method on the named object instead of /com/redhat/oddjob. -i interface The method is part of the named interface instead of com.redhat.oddjob. -I Default to the method and interface names used for D-Bus introspection (Introspect and org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, respec- tively).
