The C WS Core is an implementation of Web Services, WSRF, and WSN specifications in the C programming language. This means that a user can write their own Web Services and clients in C, and use the APIs and tools included in in the C WS Core to manage WS-Resources.
The C WS Core includes:
- A small container for services
- An embeddable service container API
- API for managing resources
- API for managing notification consumers
- A WSDL to C binding generator
- Security Support
It does not include support at this time for WSDL generation from C header files, or embedding services into 3rd party containers.
Please see the C WS Core Command Reference.
The following usage statistics are sent by C WS Core by default in a UDP packet :
- Component identifier
- Usage data format identifier
- Time stamp
- Source IP address
- Source hostname (to differentiate between hosts with identical private IP addresses)
It sends it at container startup (globus-wsc-container) and receipt of that packet tells us that the container started.
If you wish to disable this feature, you can set the following environment variable before running the C container:
By default, these usage statistics UDP packets are sent to
but can be redirected to another host/port or multiple host/ports
with the following environment variable:
export GLOBUS_USAGE_TARGETS="myhost.mydomain:12345 myhost2.mydomain:54321"
You can also dump the usage stats packets to stderr as they are sent (although most of the content is non-ascii). Use the following environment variable for that:
Also, please see our policy statement on the collection of usage statistics.
