Starting and stopping a HAM

You start a HAM by running the ham utility at the command line:


The ham utility has these command-line options:

Display usage message
Disable internal verbosity.
Log verbose output to a file (default is stderr).
-t none|relative|absolute|shortabs
Specify the timestamping method. The default is relative.
Set verbosity level — extra -v's increase verbosity.
Set verbosity level — use a number to specify the level (e.g., -V3).

When a HAM starts, it also starts the Guardian process for itself.

Note: You must start ham with its full path or with the PATH variable set to include the path to ham as a component.

You must be root in order to start or stop a HAM.
