Public registry

PUBLIC REGISTRY FOR INDEPENDENT SERVICES

The main 9gridchan registry is exported read-only, so that the gridstart script can work in a deterministic manner and it does not become intermixed with services of unknown origin. An open public registry to which other users can announce services is also provided. It's default mountpoint is /n/pubregistry. If you wish to announce services to it, you will probably want to make use of the gridlisten1 program, available in the ANTS repository. If that program is installed, the following is an example sequence to provide a read-only export of a given directory:

bind -c /n/pubregistry /mnt/registry
gridlisten1 -t -d myfiles tcp!*!9999 /bin/exportfs -R -r /usr/glenda/pubshare
