SCIWORKERD(8) - System Manager’s Manual
sciworkerd - sci worker daemon
sciworkerd [-j maxbuilds] [-k key] [-t timeout] [-u url] [-w workername]
The sciworkerd daemon waits indefinitely for jobs to execute and send back their result. It requires an access to scid(8) running.
It is strongly advised to run sciworkerd in a clean chroot environment, otherwise you can fetch untrusted scripts if the remote scid gets compromised.
It is part of the sci(7) continuous integration framework.
The following options are available:
Set the maximum number of parallel builds allowed to maxbuilds. Defaults: 4.
Set the API authentication to key.
Defines in seconds the timeout before a job will be killed. Default: 600 seconds.
Set the url for connecting to scid(8). You can specify a scheme using “http://” or “https://”. Default: “localhost”.
Specify which worker this daemon should refer to using worker as worker name. Default: “default”
The following environment variables affects sciworkerd:
Points to a HTTP URL where scid is running. Must start with a HTTP scheme such as “http” or “https”.
Secret API key to perform requests.
Defines the worker name to connect as.
Register as openbsd worker
$ sciworkerd -w openbsd
Run with maximum of four tasks in parallel with a timeout of five minutes
$ sciworkerd -j 4 -t 300
