NAME

       ctdb.conf - CTDB configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       This file contains CTDB configuration options that affect the operation of CTDB daemons
       and command-line tools. The default location of this file is /etc/ctdb/ctdb.conf.

       Note that this is a Samba-style configuration file, so it has a very different syntax to
       previous CTDB configuration files.

       For event script options please see ctdb-script.options(5).

       Configuration options are grouped into several sections below. There are only a few
       options in each section, allowing them to be ordered (approximately) in decreasing order
       of importance.

LOGGING CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section control CTDB's logging. They are valid within the logging section
       of file, indicated by [logging].

       log level = LOGLEVEL
           LOGLEVEL is a string that controls the verbosity of ctdbd's logging. See the LOG
           LEVELS section in ctdb(7) for more details.

           Default: NOTICE

       location = STRING
           STRING specifies where ctdbd will write its log.

           Valid values are:

           file:FILENAME
               FILENAME where ctdbd will write its log. This is usually /var/log/ctdb/log.ctdb.

           syslog[:METHOD]
               CTDB will log to syslog. By default this will use the syslog(3) API.

               If METHOD is specified then it specifies an extension that causes logging to be
               done in a non-blocking fashion. This can be useful under heavy loads that might
               cause the syslog daemon to dequeue messages too slowly, which would otherwise
               cause CTDB to block when logging. METHOD must be one of:

               nonblocking
                   CTDB will log to syslog via /dev/log in non-blocking mode.

               udp
                   CTDB will log to syslog via UDP to localhost:514. The syslog daemon must be
                   configured to listen on (at least) localhost:514. Most implementations will
                   log the messages against hostname "localhost" - this is a limit of the
                   implementation for compatibility with more syslog daemon implementations.

               udp-rfc5424
                   As with "udp" but messages are sent in RFC5424 format. This method will log
                   the correct hostname but is not as widely implemented in syslog daemons.

           Default: file:/var/log/ctdb/log.ctdb

CLUSTER CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section affect the CTDB cluster setup. They are valid within the cluster
       section of file, indicated by [cluster].

       recovery lock = LOCK
           LOCK specifies the cluster-wide mutex used to detect and prevent a partitioned cluster
           (or "split brain").

           For information about the recovery lock please see the RECOVERY LOCK section in
           ctdb(7).

           Default: NONE. However, uses of a recovery lock is strongly recommended.

       node address = IPADDR
           IPADDR is the private IP address that ctdbd will bind to.

           This option is only required when automatic address detection can not be used. This
           can be the case when running multiple ctdbd daemons/nodes on the same physical host
           (usually for testing), using InfiniBand for the private network or on Linux when
           sysctl net.ipv4.ip_nonlocal_bind=1.

           Default: CTDB selects the first address from the nodes list that it can bind to. See
           also the PRIVATE ADDRESS section in ctdb(7).

       transport = tcp|ib
           This option specifies which transport to use for ctdbd internode communications on the
           private network.

           ib means InfiniBand. The InfiniBand support is not regularly tested. If it is known to
           be broken then it may be disabled so that a value of ib is considered invalid.

           Default: tcp

DATABASE CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section affect the CTDB database setup. They are valid within the database
       section of file, indicated by [database].

       volatile database directory = DIRECTORY
           DIRECTORY on local storage where CTDB keeps a local copy of volatile TDB databases.
           This directory is local for each node and should not be stored on the shared cluster
           filesystem.

           Mounting a tmpfs (or similar memory filesystem) on this directory can provide a
           significant performance improvement when there is I/O contention on the local disk.

           Default: /var/lib/ctdb/volatile

       persistent database directory=DIRECTORY
           DIRECTORY on local storage where CTDB keeps a local copy of persistent TDB databases.
           This directory is local for each node and should not be stored on the shared cluster
           filesystem.

           Default: /var/lib/ctdb/persistent

       state database directory = DIRECTORY
           DIRECTORY on local storage where CTDB keeps a local copy of internal state TDB
           databases. This directory is local for each node and should not be stored on the
           shared cluster filesystem.

           Default: /var/lib/ctdb/state

       tdb mutexes = true|false
           This parameter enables TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING feature on volatile databases if the robust
           mutexes are supported. This optimizes the record locking using robust mutexes and is
           much more efficient that using posix locks.

           If robust mutexes are unreliable on the platform being used then they can be disabled
           by setting this to false.

       lock debug script = FILENAME
           FILENAME is a script used by CTDB's database locking code to attempt to provide
           debugging information when CTDB is unable to lock an entire database or a record.

           This script should be a bare filename relative to the CTDB configuration directory
           (/etc/ctdb/). Any directory prefix is ignored and the path is calculated relative to
           this directory.

           CTDB provides a lock debugging script and installs it as /etc/ctdb/debug_locks.sh.

           Default: NONE

EVENT HANDLING CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section affect CTDB event handling. They are valid within the event
       section of file, indicated by [event].

       debug script = FILENAME
           FILENAME is a script used by CTDB's event handling code to attempt to provide
           debugging information when an event times out.

           This script should be a bare filename relative to the CTDB configuration directory
           (/etc/ctdb/). Any directory prefix is ignored and the path is calculated relative to
           this directory.

           CTDB provides a script for debugging timed out event scripts and installs it as
           /etc/ctdb/debug-hung-script.sh.

           Default: NONE

FAILOVER CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section affect CTDB failover. They are valid within the failover section
       of file, indicated by [failover].

       disabled = true|false
           If set to true then public IP failover is disabled.

           Default: false

LEGACY CONFIGURATION

       Options in this section affect legacy CTDB setup. They are valid within the legacy section
       of file, indicated by [legacy].

       ctdb start as stopped = true|false
           If set to true CTDB starts in the STOPPED state.

           To allow the node to take part in the cluster it must be manually continued with the
           the ctdb continue command.

           Please see the NODE STATES section in ctdb(7) for more information about the STOPPED
           state.

           Default: false

       start as disabled = true|false
           If set to true CTDB starts in the DISABLED state.

           To allow the node to host public IP addresses and services, it must be manually
           enabled using the ctdb enable command.

           Please see the NODE STATES section in ctdb(7) for more information about the DISABLED
           state.

           Default: false

       realtime scheduling = true|false
           Usually CTDB runs with real-time priority. This helps it to perform effectively on a
           busy system, such as when there are thousands of Samba clients. If you are running
           CTDB on a platform that does not support real-time priority, you can set this to
           false.

           Default: true

       recmaster capability = true|false
           Indicates whether a node can become the recovery master for the cluster. If this is
           set to false then the node will not be able to become the recovery master for the
           cluster. This feature is primarily used for making a cluster span across a WAN link
           and use CTDB as a WAN-accelerator.

           Please see the REMOTE CLUSTER NODES section in ctdb(7) for more information.

           Default: true

       lmaster capability = true|false
           Indicates whether a node can become a location master for records in a database. If
           this is set to false then the node will not be part of the vnnmap. This feature is
           primarily used for making a cluster span across a WAN link and use CTDB as a
           WAN-accelerator.

           Please see the REMOTE CLUSTER NODES section in ctdb(7) for more information.

           Default: true

       script log level = LOGLEVEL
           This option sets the debug level of event script output to LOGLEVEL.

           See the DEBUG LEVELS section in ctdb(7) for more information.

           Default: ERROR
