EXECNET(4) EXECNET(4) NAME execnet - network interface to program execution SYNOPSIS execnet [ -n name ] [ netdir ] DESCRIPTION Execnet presents a network protocol directory (see, for example, ip(3)) called netdir/name (default /net/exec). Once the protocol directory exists, dialing (see dial(2)) strings of the form name!cmd will connect to a newly exe- cuted instance of cmd. EXAMPLE Execnet can be used to connect to instances of u9fs(4) run- ning on other hosts: g% execnet g% srv -m 'exec!ssh ny start-u9fs' ny /n/ny This example assumes that the remote command start-u9fs exe- cuted on ny will start u9fs appropriately. For example, it might be: ny% cat start-u9fs #!/bin/sh u9fs -na none -u $USER -l $HOME/tmp/u9fs.log ny% See the u9fs(4) man page for more information. SOURCE /sys/src/cmd/execnet SEE ALSO dial(2), ip(3), u9fs(4) BUGS Almost certainly: execnet has only been tested as in the example shown.
