NAME
       tirex-backend-manager - manages Tirex rendering backend workers

SYNOPSIS
       tirex-backend-manager [OPTIONS]

OPTIONS
       --help
           Display help message.

       -d, --debug
           Run in debug mode, and pass on the debug flag to workers

       --config=DIR
           Use the DIR config directory instead of /etc/tirex.

DESCRIPTION
       The backend manager starts and monitors as many backend workers as
       given in the configuration. The backend processes do the actual
       rendering of tiles.

       The backend manager expects each worker process to send an "alive"
       message in regular intervals, and will kill the process if it does not
       do so in time.

       The backend manager does not handle render requests in any way; these
       are read directly from a local UDP socket by the individual backend
       processes.

       If the backend manager receives a HUP signal, it will relay this signal
       to all backends, causing them to exit after completing their current
       request.  It will reload the renderer and map configuration and re-
       start all workers with the new configuration.

FILES
       /etc/tirex/tirex.conf
           The configuration file.

       /etc/tirex/renderer/*.conf
           Configuration files for renderers

       /etc/tirex/renderer/*/*.conf
           Map configurations

DIAGNOSTICS
       The backend manager logs to the daemon syslog facility unless
       configured otherwise. In debug mode, logging is also copied to stderr.
