Sets message output to log_file. The default is stderr. When the chan-

The EVM channel manager is started automatically by the EVM daemon, and
usually should not be run as a stand-alone program. It reads a set of
channel definitions from the channel configuration file and executes the
commands defined as the monitor and cleanup functions for any channel, at
the configured intervals. There is no requirement for any channel to be
configured with either of the periodic functions; the channel manager
ignores any channels which have neither.
By default, the channel manager reads its configuration from
/etc/evmchannel.conf. The -c option can be used to override this. If the
channel configuration file is changed while the channel manager is running,
the evmreload -c command should be used to instruct it to reconfigure
The channel manager reconfigures itself when evmreload -c is run, or upon
receipt of a SIGHUP signal.
The following exit values are returned:
