Re: question

Hi Brett,

To some degree, yes. When we added replication, we needed an easy way to replicate the state of all the "cosign= "cookies to the other cosign servers. By changing from a file parse to the permissions test, monster can replicate logged in/out status with just a stat() and no longer needs to call read_cookie(). I suppose we should remove the s[0/1] file format line, but we've kept it for compatibility's sake so far.

Hi all,


In the cosign cookie store on disk, you have a line starting with s, from looking around the code it look like this used to be the logged in/logged out status. But it appears to be legacy now, and you are using the set group id on exec bit. Why was this… was it to save having to re-write the file again?
