CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

scriptmgr.py [switches] config.ini <command> [-a | -t service | job_name...]

Unknown services are ignored.

    scriptmgr parameters

config_list

List of glob patterns for finding config files. Example:

job_name        = scriptmgr_livesrv
logfile         = ~/log/%(job_name)s.log
pidfile         = ~/pid/%(job_name)s.pid

config_list     = ~/scripts/conf/*.ini

# defaults for all service sections
[DEFAULT]
cwd = ~/scripts

[table_dispatcher]
script = table_dispatcher.py
args = -v

[cube_dispatcher]
script = python2.4 cube_dispatcher.py
