nasd.conf - Configuration file for NAS servers.
nasd.conf Is a file that can be used to configure the behaiviour of the
NAS server, including what devices it will attempt to use, the minimum
& maximum frequencies used, if the device should be used in 8bit or
16bit mode, what fragment size and number of fragments should be used
(useful for tuning the server’s latency) and if the server should be
verbose when starting or output debugging information. Not all options
are supported for all servers, see the /etc/nas/nasd.conf.eg file for
information on what options are supported for which servers.
THE CONFIG FILE SYNTAX
There are up to three section in the config file. The first section
deals with global options, some of which just turn on verbose messages
when parsing the config file, and setting debug messages on. The
remaining two sections will, if present, adjust various parameters of
the input and output devices, for those server that undersand them.
verbose Sets a flag telling the server to report what it’s trying to do
with each setting in the config file.
debug <number> Sets the debug flag, which will provide a trace of the
server’s activities on stderr. Set <num> to 0 to disable debug
messages, 99 for *alot* of debug messages.
mixerinit YES |"NO" Set to "YES" to "NO". Defines whether the server
will init the mixer device on startup. (voxware)
OutDevType EXT |"INT" For HPUX servers, define to "EXT" to use the
external output device (headphone/speakers) or "INT" for the internal
output device (internal speaker). Defaults to external.
inputsection Marks the beginning of the input section, which allows
various parameters of the input device to be set up.
end Marks the end of the input section or output section.
device devname Specifies what device is used. An example is device
mixer mixername Specifies what mixer device is used. An example is
gain number Specifies the default volume (0-100). The default is 50.
maxrate number the maximum number of samples per second that we’ll
drive the card at.
minrate number the minimum number of samples per second that the card
will be driven at.
maxfrags number The maximum number of of kernel buffers that will be
used for the device. the number is dynamically adjusted as the
sampling frequency varies.
minfrags number The minimum number of kernel buffers that will be used.
fragsize number The size of each buffer - note that the size must be a
power of 2.
wordsize number The number of bits per sample. Allowable values are 8
numchans number Used to decide if the card is run in stereo or mono
mode. Allowable values are 1 or 2.
forcerate no |"yes" Forces the output rate to the current rate. The
default is "no".
autoOpen no |"yes" Whether to open the device at init time (if
ReleaseDevice = no). The default is "yes".
readwrite no |"yes" Whether or not to open the device read/write. The
default is "yes". If set to "no", then for input devices, the device
will be opened readonly, and for output devices, the the device will be
nas(1), nasd(1), auinfo(1), auplay(1), auctl(1)
