gnunet-arm - control GNUnet services  


[-c FILENAME | --config= FILENAME ] [-d | -delete ] [-e | -end ] [-E | -no-stderr ] [-h | -help ] [-i SERVICE | --init= SERVICE ] [-I | -info ] [-k SERVICE | --kill= SERVICE ] [-l FILENAME | --logfile= FILENAME ] [-L LOGLEVEL | --loglevel= LOGLEVEL ] [-m | -monitor ] [-O | -no-stdout ] [-q | -quiet ] [-r | -restart ] [-s | -start ] [-T DELAY | -timeout= TIMEOUT ] [-v | -version ]  


can be used to start or stop GNUnet services, including the ARM service itself. The ARM service is a supervisor for GNUnet's service processes. ARM starts services on-demand or as configured and restarts them if they crash.

-c FILENAME | --config= FILENAME
Use the configuration file FILENAME
-d | -delete
Delete configuration file and directory on exit.
-e | -end
Shutdown all GNUnet services (including ARM itself). Running "gnunet-arm -e" is the usual way to shutdown a GNUnet peer.
-E | -no-stderr
Don't let gnunet-arm inherit stderr (standard error).
-h | -help
Print short help on options.
-i SERVICE | --init= SERVICE
Starts the specified SERVICE if it is not already running. More specifically, this makes the service behave as if it were in the default services list.
-I | -info
List all running services.
-k SERVICE | --kill= SERVICE
Stop SERVICE if it is running. While this will kill the service right now, the service may be restarted immediately if other services depend on it (the service is then started 'on-demand'). If the service used to be a 'default' service, its default-service status will be revoked. If the service was not a default service, it will just be (temporarily) stopped, but could be re-started on-demand at any time.
-l FILENAME | --logfile= FILENAME
Write logs to FILENAME
-L LOGLEVEL | --loglevel= LOGLEVEL
Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
-m | -monitor
Monitor service activity of ARM. In this mode, the command will not terminate until the user presses CTRL-C (thus sending SIGTERM or SIGINT).
-O | -no-stdout
Don't let gnunet-arm inherit standard output
-q | -quiet
Don't print status messages.
-r | -restart
Stop and start all GNUnet default services.
-s | -start
Start all GNUnet default services on this system (and also ARM). Naturally, if a service is demanded by a default service, it will then also be started. Running "gnunet-arm -s" is the usual way to start a GNUnet peer.
-T DELAY | -timeout= DELAY
Exit with error status if operation does not finish after DELAY , provided in number of microseconds.
-v | -version
Print GNUnet version number.



Start the gnunet-arm for the user:

gnunet-arm -s

Stop the gnunet-arm for the user:

The full documentation for gnunet is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info(1) and gnunet programs are properly installed at your site, the command

info gnunet

should give you access to the complete handbook,

info gnunet-c-tutorial

will give you access to a tutorial for developers.

Depending on your installation, this information is also available in gnunet(7)and gnunet-c-tutorial7.
