Arc information index server
The arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations about local information systems and other arc-infoindex-servers creating an hierarcical information system for discovering Grid resources
arc-infoindex-relay -c conffile -f fifo
The configuration file, usually /etc/arc.conf
The FIFO on which the server will accept queries
arc-infoindex-server accepts registrations with information about local information systems and other arc-infoindex-servers. It also responds to status queries returning the list of registered resources and their registration status (valid, invalid or purged).
Queries are accepted on a FIFO and are normally forwarded from a slapd server through an arc-infoindex-relay process. The first line of a query should contain the name of a FIFO on which the response should be returned. The remaining part of the query should be a Globus MDS query in LDIF format.
To stop arc-infoindex-server write the special query "STOP" to the server FIFO.
Several resource indices can be kept in the same server. Each of them should have an [infosys/index] block in the configuration file. The set of resoures that are allowed to register to each index can be limited using allowreg keys.
Here is an example configuration:
[infosys/index/Sweden] allowreg="*.uu.se:2135" allowreg="*.lu.se:2135" allowreg="*.liu.se:2135" allowreg="*.umu.se:2135" allowreg="*.chalmers.se:2135" allowreg="*.kth.se:2135"
