GarmB Reference
GarmB is the descriptor building tool in the GARM suite. GarmB can be used to create the descriptors used in a network GAR repository. Descriptors greatly reduce the network traffic caused by reconfiguration. GarmB is invoked as follows:
garmb url dir files
URL is the base URL for the descriptors to use when describing the location of the GAR they represent. dir is the location to store the completed .garx files. Finally, files is a list of GAR files to generate descriptors for. The location in which GarmB is executed is significant; in general it is useful to think of the the URL argument pointing to the directory in which GarmB is run. See here for a much more complete discussion of GarmB usage.
