bkl-orbiter(1) daemon to watching sources that need to be indexed




This manual page documents briefly the bkl-orbiter command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

bkl-orbiter is a daemon that always run and keeps track of various sources, watching for files on the sources that need to be indexed. When the daemon has found something that needs extracting, it starts the bkl-investigator. bkl-investigator scans the file for metadata and sends back to the orbiter. The orbiter puts this metadata into the database.

Currently the sources that bkl-orbiter can watch are

For local filesystems
Removable media
For CD/DVDs and removable storage devices
For UPnP based media servers on the local network
