    uuidd

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           uuidd [options]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  uuidd  daemon  is used by the UUID library to generate universally
           unique identifiers (UUIDs), especially time-based UUIDs,  in  a  secure
           and  guaranteed-unique  fashion,  even  in the face of large numbers of
           threads running on different CPUs trying to grab UUIDs.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -d, --debug
                  Run uuidd in debugging mode.  This prevents uuidd  from  running
                  as a daemon.
    
           -h, --help
                  Display help screen and exit.
    
           -k, --kill
                  If currently a uuidd daemon is running, kill it.
    
           -n, --uuids number
                  When  issuing  a test request to a running uuidd, request a bulk
                  response of number UUIDs.
    
           -p, --pid path
                  Specify the pathname where the pid file should be  written.   By
                  default, the pid file is written to /run/uuidd/uuidd.pid.
    
           -P, --no-pid
                  Do not create pid file.
    
           -F, --no-fork
                  Do not daemonize using double-fork.
    
           -S, --socket-activation
                  Do not create the socket and instead expect it to be provided by
                  the calling process.  Implies --no-fork  and  --no-pid.   As  of
                  this  writing, this option is supposed to be used only with sys-
                  temd.  This option must be enabled with a configure option.
    
           -q, --quiet
                  Suppress some failure messages.
    
           -r, --random
                  Test uuidd by trying to connect to a running  uuidd  daemon  and
                  request it to return a random-based UUID.
    
           -s, --socket path
                  Specify  the  pathname  used  for the unix-domain socket used by
                  uuidd.  By default, the  pathname  used  is  /run/uuidd/request.
                  This  is primarily for debugging purposes, since the pathname is
                  hard-coded in the libuuid library.
    
                  uuidd -p /tmp/uuidd.pid -s /tmp/uuidd.socket
                  uuidd -d -r -n 42 -s /tmp/uuidd.socket
                  uuidd -d -k -s /tmp/uuidd.socket
