NAME

       container-sync-realms.conf  -  configuration  file  for the OpenStack Swift container sync
       realms

SYNOPSIS

       container-sync-realms.conf

DESCRIPTION

       This is the configuration file used by the Object storage Swift to  perform  container  to
       container  synchronization.  This  configuration  file  is  used  to configure clusters to
       allow/accept sync requests to/from other clusters. Using this configuration file, the user
       specifies where to sync their container to along with a secret synchronization key.

       You   can   find   more  information  about  container  to  container  synchronization  at
       https://docs.openstack.org/swift/latest/overview_container_sync.html

       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
       http://pythonpaste.org/deploy/#config-format

GLOBAL SECTION

       This is indicated by section named [DEFAULT]. Below are the parameters that are acceptable
       within this section.

       mtime_check_interval
              The number of seconds between checking the modified time of this  config  file  for
              changes and therefore reloading it. The default value is 300.

REALM SECTIONS

       Each  section  name  is the name of a sync realm, for example [realm1].  A sync realm is a
       set of clusters that have agreed to allow container syncing with each other.  Realm  names
       will  be  considered case insensitive. Below are the parameters that are acceptable within
       this section.

       cluster_clustername1
              Any values in the realm section whose name begin with cluster_  will  indicate  the
              name  and  endpoint  of  a  cluster  and  will  be  used by external users in their
              container's  X-Container-Sync-To  metadata  header  values  with  the   format   as
              "realm_name/cluster_name/container_name".    The   Realm   and  cluster  names  are
              considered to be case insensitive.

       cluster_clustername2
              Any values in the realm section whose name begin with cluster_  will  indicate  the
              name  and  endpoint  of  a  cluster  and  will  be  used by external users in their
              container's  X-Container-Sync-To  metadata  header  values  with  the   format   as
              "realm_name/cluster_name/container_name".    The   Realm   and  cluster  names  are
              considered to be case insensitive.

              The endpoint is what the container sync daemon will use when sending  out  requests
              to  that  cluster.  Keep  in  mind this endpoint must be reachable by all container
              servers, since that is where the container sync daemon runs. Note that the endpoint
              ends   with   /v1/   and   that  the  container  sync  daemon  will  then  add  the
              account/container/obj name after that.

       key    The key is the overall cluster-to-cluster key used in combination with the external
              users'  key that they set on their containers' X-Container-Sync-Key metadata header
              values. These keys will be used to sign each  request  the  container  sync  daemon
              makes and used to validate each incoming container sync request.

       key2   The  key2  is  optional  and is an additional key incoming requests will be checked
              against. This is so you can rotate keys if you wish; you move the existing  key  to
              key2 and make a new key value.

EXAMPLE

       [DEFAULT]
       mtime_check_interval = 300

       [realm1]
       key = realm1key
       key2 = realm1key2
       cluster_clustername1 = https://host1/v1/
       cluster_clustername2 = https://host2/v1/

       [realm2]
       key = realm2key
       key2 = realm2key2
       cluster_clustername3 = https://host3/v1/
       cluster_clustername4 = https://host4/v1/
