SCRIPTMGR(1)   SCRIPTMGR(1)

scriptmgr - utility for controlling other skytools scripts.

scriptmgr.py [switches] config.ini <command> [-a | -t service | job_name...]

scriptmgr is used to manage several scripts together. It discovers potential jobs based on config file glob expression. From config file it gets both job_name and service type (that is the main section name, e.g. [cube_dispatcher]). For each service type there is subsection in the config how to handle it. Unknown services are ignored.

scriptmgr config.ini status
Show status for all known jobs.

scriptmgr config.ini start -a
scriptmgr config.ini start -t service
scriptmgr config.ini start job_name1 job_name2 ...
Launch script(s) that are not running.

scriptmgr config.ini stop -a
scriptmgr config.ini stop -t service
scriptmgr config.ini stop job_name1 job_name2 ...
Stop script(s) that are running.

scriptmgr config.ini restart -a
scriptmgr config.ini restart -t service
scriptmgr config.ini restart job_name1 job_name2 ...
Restart scripts.

scriptmgr config.ini reload -a
scriptmgr config.ini reload -t service
scriptmgr config.ini reload job_name1 job_name2 ...
Send SIGHUP to scripts that are running.

job_name
Name for particulat job the script does. Script will log under this name to logdb/logserver. The name is also used as default for PgQ consumer name. It should be unique.
pidfile
Location for pid file. If not given, script is disallowed to daemonize.
logfile
Location for log file.
loop_delay
If continuisly running process, how long to sleep after each work loop, in seconds. Default: 1.
connection_lifetime
Close and reconnect older database connections.
use_skylog
foo.

config_list
List of glob patterns for finding config files. Example:
config_list = ~/dbscripts/conf/*.ini, ~/random/conf/*.ini

cwd
Working directory for script.
args
Arguments to give to script, in addition to -d.
script
Path to script. Unless script is in PATH, full path should be given.
disabled
If this service should be ignored.
user
Launch service as different unix user. Scriptmgr uses sudo to switch users. So it either needs to be run as root, or sudo config must allow it to launch daemons.

[scriptmgr]
job_name        = scriptmgr_livesrv
logfile         = ~/log/%(job_name)s.log
pidfile         = ~/pid/%(job_name)s.pid
config_list     = ~/scripts/conf/*.ini
# defaults for all service sections
[DEFAULT]
cwd = ~/scripts
[table_dispatcher]
script = table_dispatcher.py
args = -v
[cube_dispatcher]
script = python2.4 cube_dispatcher.py
disabled = 1
[pgqadm]
script = ~/scripts/pgqadm.py
args = ticker

Following switches are common to all skytools.DBScript-based Python programs.
-h, --help
show help message and exit
-q, --quiet
make program silent
-v, --verbose
make program more verbose
-d, --daemon
make program go background
--ini
show commented template config file.
Following switches are used to control already running process. The pidfile is read from config then signal is sent to process id specified there.
-r, --reload
reload config (send SIGHUP)
-s, --stop
stop program safely (send SIGINT)
-k, --kill
kill program immidiately (send SIGTERM)
Options specific to scriptmgr:
-a, --all
Operate on all non-disabled scripts.
-t service, --type=service
Operate on all non-disabled scripts of this service type.
-w, --wait
Wait for script(s) after signalling.
