       powerman.conf - configuration file for PowerMan


       The  powerman.conf  file  typically  includes one or more of the remote
       power controller (RPC)  device  files  provided  in  the  /etc/powerman
       directory;  sets  a  few  global options; instantiates RPC devices with
       unique names, hostnames, and ports; and maps node names  to  RPC’s  and
       plug numbers.

       Network-attached RPC’s are instantiated with device lines of the form:

              device "name" "type" "host:port"

       Serial-attached RPC’s are instantiated with device lines of the form:

              device "name" "type" "special file" "flags"

       where  special  file  is  the full path to a tty device, and flags is a
       serial parameter specification in a form similar to that used by  lilo,
       e.g.    "9600,8n1".   RPC’s  that  are  accessed  via  coprocesses  are
       instantiated as follows:

              device "name" "type" "process |&"

       where process is the full path to a process whose standard  output  and
       input  will be controlled by powerman, e.g. "/usr/bin/conman -Q -j rpc0


       The following example is a 16-node cluster that uses two 8-plug Baytech
       RPC-3 remote power controllers.

       include "/etc/powerman/"  # include def for "baytech" RPC

       tcpwrappers yes                      # enable TCP wrappers

       # listen ""             # uncomment to listen on all interfaces

       # Alias example - alias can be used in target specifications
       alias "pengra_service" "pengra[0-1]"
       alias "pengra_compute" "pengra[2-15]"

       # Power controller: device <name> <type> <hostname:port> [<flags>]
       device "pow0" "baytech" "pow0:23"  # instantiate pow0
       device "pow1" "baytech" "pow1:23"  # instantiate pow1

       # Plugs: node <name> <device> [<plug>]
       node "pengra[0-7]" "pow0" "[1-8]"  # map pengra0...pengra7 to pow0 plug 1-8
       node "pengra[8-15]" "pow1" "[1-8]" # map pengra8...pengra15 to pow1 plug 1-8
