       ganeti-noded - ganeti node daemon


       ganeti-noded  [ -f ] [ -d ]


       The  ganeti-noded  is  the  daemon  which  is  responsible for the node
       functions in the ganeti system.

       For testing purposes, you can give the -f option and the program  won’t
       detach from the running terminal.

       Debug-level message can be activated by giving the -d option.

       The role of the node daemon is to do almost all the actions that change
       the state of the  node.  Things  like  creating  disks  for  instances,
       activating disks, starting/stopping instance and so on are done via the
       node daemon.

       Also, in some cases the startup/shutdown of the master daemon are  done
       via  the  node daemon, and the cluster IP address is also added/removed
       to the master node via it.

       If the node daemon is stopped, the instances are not affected, but  the
       master won’t be able to talk to that node.

       Currently  the  master-node  RPC  is  done using a simple json-RPC over
