gkrellmd(1)				  User's Manual 			      gkrellmd(1)

NAME
       gkrellmd - The GNU Krell Monitors Server

SYNOPSIS
       gkrellmd [ --help ] [ --verbose ] [ -u | --update-hz N ]

       [ -m | --max-clients N ] [ -P | --port N ] [ -a | --allow-host hostname ]

DESCRIPTION
       gkrellmd  Listens for connections from gkrellm clients.	When a gkrellm client connects to
       a gkrellmd server all builtin monitors collect their data from the server.   However,  the
       gkrellm	process  is  running on the local machine, so any enabled plugins will run in the
       local context (Flynn is an example exception to this since it derives its  data	from  the
       builtin CPU monitor).  Also, any command launching will run commands on the local machine.

       There  is  no  support  for file system mounting and local mailbox checking on the machine
       where the gkrellmd server is running.

OPTIONS
       -h --help
	      Displays usage information and exits.

       -v --version
	      Prints gkrellmd version and exits.

       -V --verbose
	      Prints connection progress.

       -u, --update-hz f
	      Sets the data update frequency in samples per second for the server.  This is inde-
	      pendent of and should be less than the gkrellm client update rate.  The rate can be
	      from 1 to 10 and should be lower to minimize network traffic.  A value of not  much
	      more  than 1/2 the client update rate is best where it is not important to minimize
	      network traffic.

       -m, --max-clients N
	      Sets the maximum number of simultaneous clients allowed to connect to the server.

       -P, --port server_port
	      Use server_port for the network connection.

       -a, --allow-host hostname
	      Specify hosts which are allowed to connect.  Multiple allow-host arguments  may  be
	      given.   If  no hosts are specified on the command line or in a gkrellmd.conf file,
	      then all hosts are allowed to connect.  Also, if hostname is the keyword	ALL  then
	      all  hosts  are allowed.	This option is additive and specified hosts will be added
	      to the hostnames listed in gkrellmd.conf files unless the --clear-hosts  option  is
	      given first.

       -c, --clear-hosts
	      Clears  the  current list of allowed hosts.  Use this before any --allow-host argu-
	      ments if you want command line allowed hosts to override and  not  be  additive  to
	      those specified in gkrellmd.conf files.

FILES
       /etc/gkrellmd.conf
	      System  server config which is read first.  The config file may contain lines simi-
	      lar to the command line args.  For example:

       allow-host localhost

       allow-host 127.0.0.1

       port 19150

       max-clients 2

       update-hz 2

       /usr/local/etc/gkrellmd.conf
	      Local server config file which is read second.

       ~/.gkrellmd.conf
	      User server config file which is read last.

       With  the  exception  of  --allow-hosts,  command  line	args  will  override  options  in
       gkrellmd.conf files.
