Master is the process that controls all of the Cyrus processes. This
process is responsible for creating all imapd, pop3d, lmtpd and sieved
child processes. This process also initializes the Berkeley DB code and
performs scheduled cleanup/maintenance.
If this process dies, then no new sessions will be started.
It kills itself and all child processes when it receives a SIGTERM.
-C alternate imapd.conf
Specifies an alternate imapd.conf for use by master (note that this
will not affect any sub-processes spawned by master, you should
specify those specifically in the respective entries in cyrus.conf).
-M alternate cyrus.conf
Specifies an alternate cyrus.conf for use by master.
-l listen queue backlog
Increase the listen queue backlog. By default, the listen queue is set
to 32. On systems with a high connection rate, it may be desirable
to increase this value. refer to listen(2) for details.
-j janitor full-sweeps per second
Sets the amount of times per second the janitor should sweep the
entire child table. Leave it at the default of 1 unless you have a
really high fork rate (and you have not increased the child hash table
size when you compiled Cyrus from its default of 10000 entries).
Use pidfile as the pidfile. If not specified, defaults to
-P snmp agentx ping interval
Sets the amount on time in seconds the subagent will try and reconnect
to the master agent (snmpd) if it ever becomes (or starts)
disconnected. Requires net-snmp 5.0 or higher.
-d Start in daemon mode (run in background and disconnect from
-D Don't close stdin/stdout/stderr. Primiarly useful for debugging.
-x snmp agentx socket
Address the master agent (most likely snmpd) listens on. Requires
net-snmp 5.0 or higher.
Upon execution, master reads its configuration information out of the
Master rereads its configuration file when it receives a hangup signal,
SIGHUP. Services and events may be added, deleted or modified when the
configuration file is reread. Any active services removed from the
configuration file will be allowed to run until completion.
The environment variable CYRUS_VERBOSE can be set to log additional
debugging information. Setting the value to 1 results in base level
logging. Setting it higher results in more log messages being generated.
