NAME conmand - ConMan daemon
SYNOPSIS conmand [OPTION]...
DESCRIPTION conmand is the daemon responsible for managing consoles defined by its configuration file as well as listening for connections from clients.
OPTIONS -c file Specify a configuration file, overriding the default location [/etc/conman.conf].
-h Display a summary of the command-line options.
-k Send a SIGTERM to the conmand process associated with the speci- fied configuration, thereby killing the daemon. Returns 0 if the daemon was successfully signaled; otherwise, returns 1.
-L Display license information.
-p port Specify the port on which conmand will listen for clients, over- riding both the default port  and the port specified in the configuration file.
-q Displays the PID of the conmand process associated with the specified configuration if it appears active. Returns 0 if the configuration appears active; otherwise, returns 1.
-r Send a SIGHUP to the conmand process associated with the speci- fied configuration, thereby re-opening both that daemons log file and individual console log files. Returns 0 if the daemon was successfully signaled; otherwise, returns 1.
-v Enable verbose mode.
-V Display version information.
-z Truncate both the daemons log file and individual console log files at start-up.
SIGNALS SIGHUP Close and re-open both the daemons log file and the indi- vidual console log files. Conversion specifiers within filenames will be re-evaluated. This is useful for logro- tate configurations.
SIGTERM Terminate the daemon.
SECURITY The client/server communications are not yet encrypted.
NOTES Log messages are sent to standard-error until after the configuration file has been read, at which time future messages are discarded unless either the logfile or syslog keyword has been specified (cf, con- man.conf(5)).
If the configuration file is modified while the daemon is running and a pidfile was not originally specified, the -k and -r options may be unable to identify the daemon process; consequently, the appropriate signal may need to be sent to the daemon manually.
