       lfc-dli - start the LFC Data Location Interface server


       lfc-dli [ -l log_file ]


       The  lfc-dli  command  starts  the  LFC Data Location Interface server.
       This   command   is   usually   executed   at   system   startup   time
       (/etc/rc.local).  This will create a pool of threads, look for requests
       and pass them to the LFC.  When  a  request  has  been  completed,  the
       thread becomes idle until it is allocated to another request.

       All error messages and statistical information are kept in a log.

       The Data Location Interface server listen port number can be defined on
       client hosts and on the server itself in either of the following ways:

              setting an environment variable DLI_PORT

                     setenv DLI_PORT 8085

              an entry in /etc/shift.conf like:

                     DLI  PORT 8085

       If none of these methods is used, the default port number is taken from
       the definition of DLI_PORT in dli_server.h.

       In  the log each entry has a timestamp.  For each user request there is
       one message giving information about the requestor (hostname)  and  one
       message  DLI98  giving  the request itself.  The completion code of the
       request is also logged.


       -l log_file
              Specifies a different path for the LFC Data  Location  Interface
              server log file.
