NAME
execnet – network interface to program execution

SYNOPSIS
execnet [ –n name ] [ netdir ]

DESCRIPTION
Execnet presents a network protocol directory (see, for example, ip(3)) called netdir/name (default /net/exec).

Once the protocol directory exists, dialing (see dial(2)) strings of the form name!cmd will connect to a newly executed instance of cmd.

EXAMPLE
Execnet can be used to connect to instances of u9fs(4) running on other hosts:
g% execnet
g% srv –m 'exec!ssh ny start–u9fs' ny /n/ny
This example assumes that the remote command start–u9fs executed on ny will start u9fs appropriately. For example, it might be:
ny% cat start–u9fs
#!/bin/sh
u9fs –na none –u $USER –l $HOME/tmp/u9fs.log
ny%
See the u9fs(4) man page for more information.

SEE ALSO

BUGS
Almost certainly: execnet has only been tested as in the example shown.
