man run-splitter (Administration système) - Helper script for starting splitter programs


Usage: run-splitter - Helper script for starting splitter programs


run-splitter [-k,--hup] [-s,--split] [-h,--help]


run-splitter is a helper shell script that does some of the things you need to do to get mnoGoSearch cachemode to work. Each option turns a step on or off. There is no need to run this script if you are not using cachemode.

If run-splitter is run with the -k flag, it first sends a HUP signal to the cachelogd process.

Next if the -s option is given, run-splitter then runs a splitter process. If this process returns successfully, run-splitter deletes the old log files.

In most cases, the run-splitter script is run with both -k and -s options. run-splitter is generally run after the indexer process.


-k, --hup
Send -HUP signal to cachelogd
-s, --split
