ChkptCache - checkpoint the Vesta-2 cache server
ChkptCache [ -n ]
ChkptCache invokes the Checkpoint method of the Vesta-2 cache server named in the user's Vesta-2 configuration file.
By default, ChkptCache flushes the cache server's logs to disk, and writes a root node to the graph log with a package version fingerprint equal to the fingerprint of the empty string, a model number of zero, an empty list of children, and a done value of false.
If -n is specified, the name and port number of the cache that would be checkpointed is printed, but no action is taken.
Like most Vesta-2 applications, ChkptCache reads site-specific configuration information from a Vesta-2 configuration file named vesta.cfg. The program first looks for this file in the current directory; if none is found there, it looks in your home directory.
The configuration file is divided into a number of sections, denoted in the file by [SectionName]. The variables used by ChkptCache are in the section denoted by [CacheServer]. Here are the variables and their meanings; the types of the variables are shown in parentheses.
- Host (string)
- The hostname of the machine on which the cache server is running.
- Port (integer)
- The port number on host named by Host to contact. This allows multiple cache servers to be running on the same machine; each one listens on a different port for connections.
VCache(1), FlushCache(1), TestCache(1).
