NAME

     arla.conf - configuration file for the arla AFS implementation.

SYNOPSIS

     The default configuration file works very well in most cases.

DESCRIPTION

     Most flags can be overridden by command line arguments to arlad.

     Each option can be of the type integer, string or boolean.

     Integer values can be written with suffix ‘K’ (kilo, 1000), ‘M’ (mega,
     10000000) and ‘G’ (giga, 10000000000) .

     Strings are written without quotes or spaces in the strings.

     Boolean values can be either of yes, true, no, or false.

     Supported options:

     dynroot
             Boolean value. Dynamic root, generates your /afs directory from
             CellServDB or DynRootDB.  Useful when you don’t want to use your
             cell’s root.afs.

     fake_stat
             Boolean value.  If set, do not fetch real stat information where
             it can be expensive (i e across mountpoints), but make up some
             reasonable values.

     fetch_block
             Integer value.  Determines the fetch/pre-fetch block size.  This
             option will later be replaced by code to automagically tune this
             setting.

     low_vnodes
             Integer value.  The number of used vnodes we try to keep in the
             cache. Any higher number of used nodes will trigger the cleaner
             thread.

     high_bytes
             Integer value.  The high watermark for files used by arlad.

     low_bytes
             Integer value.  The number of bytes we try to keep in the cache.
             Any higher number of bytes will trigger the cleaner thread.

     numcreds
             Integer value.  The maximum number of credentials kept in arla,
             both authenticated (like Kerberos V4 creds), and not.

     numconns
             Integer value.  The maximum total number of connections arla will
             keep to servers (fileserver and vldb-server).

     numvols
             Integer value.  The number of volumes stored in cache.

     sysname
             String value.  The sysname is possible to specify in the
             configuration file. It’s overridden by the command line argument
             --sysname=sysname to arlad.

     rxkad-level
             It can be one of: clear, auth, or crypt.  It’s the same as the
             command line argument.

     high_vnodes
             Integer value.  The upper limit of arlad’s vnodes (think files
             and directories).

BUGS

     The parser that reads numbers doesn’t support numbers larger than 2G for
     most platforms when used on the abbreviated form (3G, 3000M, etc).  Write
     out the whole number (3000000000) and make sure you have a working
     strtoll().
