NAME

vos_sleep - Pauses for a few seconds

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The vos 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 Location Service to process requests from other users.

OPTIONS

-delay <# of seconds>

Specifies the amount of time to sleep, in seconds.

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

-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.

-cell <cell name>

Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos.

-noauth

Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos.

-localauth

Obtains an authentication token using the server encryption key with the highest key version number in the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileEx file. The resulting token never expires and has Super User privileges. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos.

-auth

Use the calling user's tokens from the kernel or as obtained using the active Kerberos ticket granting ticket to communicate with the Volume Server and Location Service. This is the default if neither -localauth nor -noauth is given.

Since this option is the default, it is usually not useful for running single command line operations. However, it can be useful when running commands via vos interactive or vos source, since otherwise it would be impossible to switch from, for example, -localauth back to using regular tokens during a bulk operation.

-verbose

Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the command's execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages appear.

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encrytion for the command so that the operation's results are not transmitted across the network in clear text.

-noresolve

Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the reverse DNS lookup hostname. -noresolve useful when troubleshooting no such volume and volume moved errors.

-config <configuration file>

Set the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.

-help

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

OUTPUT

This command produces no output other than error messages.

EXAMPLES

Here is an example of a vos interactive session:

   % vos interactive
   vos> sleep 5
   vos> quit
   %
