       cyrus-master - cyrus-master Cyrus process

       cyrus-master  [ -C alternate imapd.conf ] [ -M alternate cyrus.conf ] [
       -l listen queue ] [ -p pidfile ] [ -P snmp agentx ping interval ] [  -j
       janitor period ] [ -d ] [ -D ] [ -x snmp agentx socket ]

       Cyrus-master  is	 the process that controls all of the Cyrus processes.
       This process is responsible for creating all imapd,  pop3d,  lmtpd  and
       sieved  child  processes. This process also initializes the Berkeley DB
       code and performs scheduled cleanup/maintenance.

       If this process dies, then no new sessions will be started.

       It kills itself and all child processes when it receives a SIGTERM.

       -C alternate imapd.conf
	      Specifies an alternate imapd.conf for use by cyrus-master	 (note
	      that  this  will	not affect any sub-processes spawned by cyrus-
	      master, you should specify those specifically in the  respective
	      entries in cyrus.conf).

       -M alternate cyrus.conf
	      Specifies an alternate cyrus.conf for use by cyrus-master.

       -l listen queue backlog
	      Increase	the listen queue backlog. By default, the listen queue
	      is set to 32.   On systems with a high connection rate,  it  may
	      be  desirable  to	 increase  this	 value. refer to listen(2) for

       -j janitor full-sweeps per second
	      Sets the amount of times per second the janitor should sweep the
	      entire  child  table.   Leave  it at the default of 1 unless you
	      have a really high fork rate (and you  have  not	increased  the
	      child  hash  table size when you compiled Cyrus from its default
	      of 10000 entries).

       -p pidfile
	      Use pidfile as the  pidfile.   If	 not  specified,  defaults  to

       -P snmp agentx ping interval
	      Sets  the	 amount	 on  time in seconds the subagent will try and
	      reconnect to the cyrus-master agent (snmpd) if it	 ever  becomes
	      (or starts) disconnected.	 Requires net-snmp 5.0 or higher.

       -d     Start in daemon mode (run in background and disconnect from con‐
	      trolling terminal).

       -D     Don't close stdin/stdout/stderr. Primiarly useful for debugging.

       -x snmp agentx socket
	      Address the cyrus-master agent (most likely snmpd)  listens  on.
	      Requires net-snmp 5.0 or higher.

       Upon execution, cyrus-master reads its configuration information out of
       the cyrus.conf(5) file.

       Cyrus-master rereads its configuration file when it receives  a	hangup
       signal,	SIGHUP.	 Services and events may be added, deleted or modified
       when the configuration file is reread.	Any  active  services  removed
       from the configuration file will be allowed to run until completion.

       The  environment	 variable  CYRUS_VERBOSE  can be set to log additional
       debugging information. Setting the value to 1  results  in  base	 level
       logging.	  Setting  it higher results in more log messages being gener‐
