Debugging
~~~~~~~~~

* The dcap libraries and dccp client use a bit mask variable.

export DCACHE_DEBUG=255

Using the client interposition library
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

dcap is a POSIX like interface for accessing dCache, allowing unmodified 
applications to access dCache transparently. This access method uses a 
proprietary data transfer protocol, which can emulate POSIX access across 
the LAN or WAN.

Unfortunately the client requires inbound connectivity and so it is not 
practical to use this protocol over the WAN as most sites will not allow 
inbound connectivity to worker nodes.

To make non dCache aware applications access files within dCache through 
dcap all that is needed is setting a couple of environment variables listed 
below.

export LD_PRELOAD=/opt/d-cache/dcap/lib/libpdcap.so 

The LD_PRELOAD environment variable overrides the operating system calls.

After the environment variables are set as above the following commands should 
work.

cp /etc/group gsidcap://door.example.org:22128/pnfs/example.org/data/dteam/myFile
ls gsidcap://door.example.org:22128/pnfs/example.org/data/dteam/DirOrFile
head gsidcap://door.example.org:22128/pnfs/example.org/data/dteam/myFile
rm gsidcap://door.example.org:22128/pnfs/example.org/data/dteam/MyFile
