opctl node create

opctl node create

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.

Upon creation, nodes populate a lockfile at DATA_DIR/lockfile.pid 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.
