-f svc.conf
Specifies a svc.conf configuration file name other than the default one. Can be specified multiple times to use multiple files.

Explicitly disables the use of static services. This flag overrides the @a ignore_static_svcs parameter value.
-p pathname
Specifies a pathname which is used to store the process id.
-s signal
Specifies a signal number other than SIGHUP to trigger reprocessing of the configuration file(s). Ignored for platforms that do not have POSIX signals, such as Windows. 

Explicitly enables the use of static services. This flag overrides the @a ignore_static_svcs parameter value.
-S directive
Specifies a service directive string. Enclose the string in quotes and escape any embedded quotes with a backslash. This option specifies service directives without the need for a configuration file.   

Option to indicate that we should be a daemon. Note that when this option is used, the process will be daemonized before the service configuration file(s) are read. During daemonization, (on POSIX systems) the current directory will be changed to "/" so the caller should either fully specify the file names, or execute a @c chroot() to the appropriate directory. @sa ACE::daemonize().   

-k point
Specifies the rendezvous point to use for the ACE distributed logger.


ace_netsvcs -f /usr/share/ace-netsvcs/svc.conf
Starts ACE network services using example configuration.
ace_netsvcs -S 'dynamic Name_Server Service_Object * netsvcs:_make_ACE_Name_Acceptor() "-p 20006"'
