Gluon is a simple decision-tree daemon, written in Perl, that executes external programs.
Version: 1.1.2Gluon is a simple decision-tree daemon, written in Perl, that executes external programs (scripts) to determine the path-flow within the decision-tree.
Operating System: Linux
Gluon project essentially operates as a basic IF-THEN-ELSE expert system that can be used to monitor and take action.
This daemon does not require installation. It can be run straight from this directory. However, if you like you can install it to /usr/local/bin for example:
# install -b -g wheel -o root -m 0711 gluon.pl /usr/local/bin/gluon.pl
# install -b -g wheel -o root -m 0600 gluon.conf /usr/local/etc/gluon.conf
# install -b -g wheel -o root -m 0600 gluon.tree /usr/local/etc/gluon.tree
as root. Then run the program as root:
# gluon.pl --config /usr/local/etc/gluon.conf --tree /usr/local/etc/gluon.tree
(or edit the config file to suit your needs)
Please note, this assumes your perl path is "/usr/bin/perl". If it isn't, either edit the top line of the gluon.pl file or run it as
$ perl gluon.pl --config /usr/local/etc/gluon.conf --tree /usr/local/etc/gluon.tree
Usage & Configuration:
For configuration, please see the OPTIONS section of the Gluon (1) manpage.
To run, simply run the command as
This will pick up the application default values, unless there is a configuration file present. You can of course set options on the command line. Options given on the command line override the corresponding options in the configuration file and the configuration file override the application defaults.
