UUIDD(8)                                                    UUIDD(8)



NAME
       uuidd - UUID generation daemon

SYNOPSIS
       uuidd [ -d ] [ -p pidfile ] [ -s socketpath ] [ -T timeout ]

       uuidd [ -r | -t ] [ -n number ] [ -s socketpath ]

       uuidd -k

DESCRIPTION
       The uuidd daemon is used by the UUID library to generate uni‐
       versally 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     Run uuidd in debugging mode.  This prevents uuidd from
              running as a daemon.

       -k     If currently a uuidd daemon is running, kill it.

       -n number
              When issuing  a  test  request  to  a  running  uuidd,
              request a bulk response of number UUIDs.

       -p pidfile
              Specify  the  pathname  where  the  pid file should be
              written.  By default,  the  pid  file  is  written  to
              /var/lib/libuuid/uuidd.pid.

       -s socketpath
              Specify  the  pathname used for the unix-domain socket
              used by uuidd.   By  default,  the  pathname  used  is
              /var/lib/libuuid/request.    This   is  primarily  for
              debugging purposes, since the pathname  is  hard-coded
              in the libuuid library.

       -r     Test  uuidd  by  trying  to connect to a running uuidd
              daemon and request it to return a random-based UUID.

       -t     Test uuidd by trying to connect  to  a  running  uuidd
              daemon and request it to return a time-based UUID.

       -T timeout
              Specify a timeout for uuidd.  If specified, then uuidd
              will exit after timeout seconds of inactivity.

       -q     Turn on quiet flag.

AUTHOR
       The   uuidd   daemon    was   written   by   Theodore    Ts'o
       <tytso@mit.edu>.
