About

ScriptChute™ is a script that is meant to suspend scripts when no avatars are present on the grid. This is beneficial for grids that have to be accessible all the time but do not necessarily have to occupy CPU time. ScriptChute™ is part of the Clockwerk which is a virtual machine meant to run a contained version of OpenSim modified by Wizardry and Steamworks.

If scripts on the grid are meant to perform computations (such as unattended scripts), then ScriptChute™ is not recommended yet in most cases, regions are only used when avatars are present and interacting with the environment.

Installing

ScriptChute™ is a PHP script that is designed to run on the command line and can be placed in /etc/cron.minutely. If the /etc/cron.minutely directory does not exist, then it can be created:

mkdir /etc/cron.minutely

and then the appropriate line can be added to crontab. For example, for Debian Linux, an entry would look like this:

* *	* * *	root	cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.minutely

After that, the script below can be placed in /etc/cron.minutely and cron can be made to reload its directories with:

kill -s HUP `pidof cron`

Code

The script requires wasRemoteAdmin.php. The location to wasRemoteAdmin.php can be changed by editing the line:

require_once('/var/www/lib/wasRemoteAdmin.php');

in the provided script.
