node create (since v0.1.15)

Create an in-process node which inherits current stderr/stdout/stdin/PGId (process group id) and blocks until killed.

There can be only one node running at a time on a given machine.


--data-dir (since v0.1.25)

Path of dir used to store node data



Upon creation, nodes populate a lockfile at data-dir/ containing their PId (process id).


Prior to node creation, if a lockfile exists, the existing lock holder will be liveness tested.

Only in the event the existing lock holder is dead will creation of a new node occur.


Debugging can be accomplished by running node create from a terminal where it's output is easily monitored.


During creation, data-dir will be cleaned of any existing events, ops, and temp files/dirs to ensure the created node starts from a clean slate.
