.SH NAME
.LP
.B container-server.conf
\- configuration file for the openstack-swift container server
.SH SYNOPSIS
.LP
.B container-server.conf
.SH DESCRIPTION
.PP
This is the configuration file used by the container server and other container
background services, such as; replicator, updater, auditor and sync.
The configuration file follows the python-pastedeploy syntax. The file is divided
into sections, which are enclosed by square brackets. Each section will contain a
certain number of key/value parameters which are described later.
Any line that begins with a '#' symbol is ignored.
You can find more information about python-pastedeploy configuration format at
\fIhttp://pythonpaste.org/deploy/#config-format\fR
.SH GLOBAL SECTION
.PD 1
.RS 0
This is indicated by section named [DEFAULT]. Below are the parameters that
are acceptable within this section.
.IP "\fBbind_ip\fR"
IP address the container server should bind to. The default is 0.0.0.0 which will make
it bind to all available addresses.
.IP "\fBbind_port\fR"
TCP port the container server should bind to. The default is 6001.
.IP \fBbacklog\fR
TCP backlog. Maximum number of allowed pending connections. The default value is 4096.
.IP \fBworkers\fR
The number of pre-forked processes that will accept connections. Zero means
no fork. The default is auto which will make the server try to match the
number of effective cpu cores if python multiprocessing is available (included
with most python distributions >= 2.6) or fallback to one. It's worth noting
that individual workers will use many eventlet co-routines to service multiple
concurrent requests.
.IP \fBmax_clients\fR
Maximum number of clients one worker can process simultaneously (it will
actually accept(2) N + 1). Setting this to one (1) will only handle one request
at a time, without accepting another request concurrently. The default is 1024.
.IP \fBuser\fR
The system user that the container server will run as. The default is swift.
.IP \fBswift_dir\fR
Swift configuration directory. The default is /etc/swift.
.IP \fBdevices\fR
Parent directory or where devices are mounted. Default is /srv/node.
.IP \fBmount_check\fR
Whether or not check if the devices are mounted to prevent accidentally writing to
the root device. The default is set to true.
.IP \fBlog_name\fR
Label used when logging. The default is swift.
.IP \fBlog_facility\fR
Syslog log facility. The default is LOG_LOCAL0.
.IP \fBlog_level\fR
Logging level. The default is INFO.
.IP \fBlog_address\fR
Logging address. The default is /dev/log.
.RE
.PD
.SH PIPELINE SECTION
.PD 1
.RS 0
This is indicated by section name [pipeline:main]. Below are the parameters that
are acceptable within this section.
.IP "\fBpipeline\fR"
It is used when you need to apply a number of filters. It is a list of filters
ended by an application. The normal pipeline is "healthcheck
recon container-server".

.SH APP SECTION
.PD 1
.RS 0
This is indicated by section name [app:container-server]. Below are the parameters
that are acceptable within this section.
.IP "\fBuse\fR"
Entry point for paste.deploy for the container server. This is the reference to the installed python egg.
This is normally \fBegg:swift#container\fR.
.IP "\fBset log_name\fR
Label used when logging. The default is container-server.
.IP "\fBset log_facility\fR
Syslog log facility. The default is LOG_LOCAL0.
.IP "\fBset log_level\fR
Logging level. The default is INFO.
.IP "\fBset log_requests\fR
Enables request logging. The default is True.
.IP "\fBset log_address\fR
Logging address. The default is /dev/log.
.IP \fBnode_timeout\fR
Request timeout to external services. The default is 3 seconds.
.IP \fBconn_timeout\fR
Connection timeout to external services. The default is 0.5 seconds.
.RE

.SH FILTER SECTION
.PD 1
.RS 0
Any section that has its name prefixed by "filter:" indicates a filter section.
Filters are used to specify configuration parameters for specific swift middlewares.
Below are the filters available and respective acceptable parameters.
.IP "\fB[filter:healthcheck]\fR"
.RE
.RS 3
.IP "\fBuse\fR"
Entry point for paste.deploy for the healthcheck middleware. This is the reference to the installed python egg.
This is normally \fBegg:swift#healthcheck\fR.
.IP "\fBdisable_path\fR"
An optional filesystem path which, if present, will cause the healthcheck
URL to return "503 Service Unavailable" with a body of "DISABLED BY FILE".
.RE
.RS 0
.IP "\fB[filter:recon]\fR"
.RS 3
.IP "\fBuse\fR"
Entry point for paste.deploy for the recon middleware. This is the reference to the installed python egg.
This is normally \fBegg:swift#recon\fR.
.IP "\fBrecon_cache_path\fR"
The recon_cache_path simply sets the directory where stats for a few items will be stored.
Depending on the method of deployment you may need to create this directory manually
and ensure that swift has read/write. The default is /var/cache/swift.
