tirex-backend-manager - manages Tirex rendering backend workers
Display help message.
Run in debug mode, and pass on the debug flag to workers
Use the DIR config directory instead of /etc/tirex.
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
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.
The configuration file.
Configuration files for renderers
The backend manager logs to the daemon syslog facility unless
configured otherwise. In debug mode, logging is also copied to stderr.
