Run ./siad (Sia Daemon) with specific modules

You can tell siad to do less stuff:

$ siad -M [module-name]

Use the -M or –modules flag to only run specific modules. Modules are
independent components of Sia. This flag should only be used by developers or
people who want to reduce overhead from unused modules. Modules are specified by
their first letter. If the -M or –modules flag is not specified the default
modules are run.

The default modules are:

gateway, consensus set, host, miner, renter, transaction pool, wallet

This is equivalent to:

siad -M cghmrtw

Below is a list of all the modules available.

Gateway (g):
The gateway maintains a peer to peer connection to the network and
enables other modules to perform RPC calls on peers.
The gateway is required by all other modules.

Example: siad -M g

Consensus Set (c):
The consensus set manages everything related to consensus and keeps the
blockchain in sync with the rest of the network.
The consensus set requires the gateway.

Example: siad -M gc

Transaction Pool (t):
The transaction pool manages unconfirmed transactions.
The transaction pool requires the consensus set.

Example: siad -M gct

Wallet (w):
The wallet stores and manages siacoins and siafunds.
The wallet requires the consensus set and transaction pool.

Example: siad -M gctw

Renter (r):
The renter manages the user’s files on the network.
The renter requires the consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.

Example: siad -M gctwr

Host (h):
The host provides storage from local disks to the network. The host
negotiates file contracts with remote renters to earn money for storing
other users’ files.
The host requires the consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.

Example: siad -M gctwh

Miner (m):
The miner provides a basic CPU mining implementation as well as an API
for external miners to use.
The miner requires the consensus set, transaction pool, and wallet.

Example: siad -M gctwm

Explorer (e):
The explorer provides statistics about the blockchain and can be
queried for information about specific transactions or other objects on
the blockchain.
The explorer requires the consenus set.

Example: siad -M gce
