NAME

pts_sleep - Pauses for a few seconds

SYNOPSIS

pts sleep [-delay] <# of seconds> [-cell] <cell name> [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>]

DESCRIPTION

The pts sleep pauses for a specified number of seconds. The command can be run from the command line or interactively, although from the command line it's essentially equivalent to the sleep command. It is intended for use in interactive mode to pause for a few seconds between batch commands to allow the Protection Service to process requests from other users.

OPTIONS

Although they have no effect, pts sleep accepts the following common pts options:

-delay <# of seconds>

Specifies the amount of time to sleep, in seconds.

-auth

Use the calling user's tokens to communicate with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).

-cell <cell name>

Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).

-config <configuration file>

Sets the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf. For more details, see pts(1).

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encryption for any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).

-force

Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

-localauth

Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).

-noauth

Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).

OUTPUT

This command produces no output other than error messages.

EXAMPLES

Here is an example of a pts interactive session:

   % pts interactive

   pts> quit
   %
