SYNOPSIS

spread [-l y/n] [-n proc_name] [-c config_file]

DESCRIPTION

spread runs the Spread daemon on the local machine using the default configuration file spread.conf unless told otherwise.

OPTIONS

-l y/n Turn on or off logging. Default is off.
-n proc_name Force this daemon to be identified by a specific process name.
-c config-file Use an alternate configuration file config-file instead of /etc/spread.conf.

FILES

/etc/spread.conf
The default config file location.

DIAGNOSTICS

The daemon will output some startup information to stdout and any severe errors will also be output to stdout. Redirecting standard out to a file or using the EventLogFile directive in the spread.conf file is recommended if you are interested in log messages.

BUGS

None currently known. The libspread library is thread-safe. However, the libspread-core.a library is not thread-safe. The libtspread-core.a library is the version to use if you need a thread-safe version of the core. The non-thread-safe library is provided for those who are writing single-threaded applications and do not want to pay the minimal performance penalty for locking.
