The minder is a small network application for automatic maintenance of peer lists. The application accepts connections from other network entities ("minions") and returns a list of other identitical minions.
When a minion contacts the minder, the minion supplies its type, network port and address, and its unique node identification.
The framework for building a minion is included in the C++ Sockets Library. The framework consists of classes representing connections between minion-minder and minion-minion, and also a controller class for them both.
The minder itself is also built with the C++ Sockets Library as its foundation.
The Minder is available through the FreeBSD Ports Collection. Find it here.
