startpar [-p par] [-i iorate] [-t timeout] [-T global_timeout] -M [
startpar is used to run multiple run-level scripts in parallel. The
degree of parallelism on one CPU can be set with the -p option, the
default is full parallelism. An argument to all of the scripts can be
provided with the -a option. Processes block by pending I/O will
weighting by the factor 800. To change this factor the option -i can
be used to specify an other value.
The output of each script is buffered and written when the script
exits, so output lines of different scripts won't mix. You can modify
this behaviour by setting a timeout.
The timeout set with the -t option is used as buffer timeout. If the
output buffer of a script is not empty and the last output was timeout
seconds ago, startpar will flush the buffer.
The -T option timeout works more globally. If no output is printed for
more than global_timeout seconds, startpar will flush the buffer of the
script with the oldest output. Afterwards it will only print output of
this script until it is finished.
The -M option switches startpar into a make(1) like behaviour. This
option takes three different arguments: boot, start, and stop for read-
ing .depend.boot or .depend.start or .depend.stop respectively in the
directory /etc/init.d/. By scanning the boot and runlevel directories
in /etc/init.d/ it then executes the appropriate scripts in parallel.
