NAME

       clush.conf - Configuration file for clush

DESCRIPTION

       clush(1) obtains configuration options from the following sources in the following order:

          1. command-line options

          2. user configuration file (~/.clush.conf)

          3. system-wide configuration file (/etc/clustershell/clush.conf)

       For each parameter, the first obtained value will be used.

       The configuration file has a format in the style of RFC 822 composed of one main section:

       Main   Program options definition

   [Main]
       Configuration parameters of the Main section are described below.

       fanout Size of the sliding window of ssh connectors.

       connect_timeout
              Timeout  in seconds to allow a connection to establish. This parameter is passed to
              ssh. If set to 0, no timeout occurs.

       command_timeout
              Timeout in seconds to allow a command to complete since  the  connection  has  been
              established.  This  parameter  is  passed  to  ssh.   In addition, the ClusterShell
              library ensures that any  commands  complete  in  less  than  (  connect_timeout  +
              command_timeout ). If set to 0, no timeout occurs.

       color  Whether  to  use  ANSI colors to surround node or nodeset prefix/header with escape
              sequences to display them in color on the  terminal.  Valid  arguments  are  never,
              always  or  auto  (which  use  color if standard output/error refer to a terminal).
              Colors are set to [34m (blue foreground text) for stdout and [31m  (red  foreground
              text) for stderr, and cannot be modified.

       fd_max Maximum  number of open file descriptors permitted per clush process (soft resource
              limit for open files). This limit can never exceed the  system  (hard)  limit.  The
              fd_max (soft) and system (hard) limits should be high enough to run clush, although
              their values depend on your fanout value.

       history_size
              Set the maximum number of history entries saved in the GNU readline  history  list.
              Negative values imply unlimited history file size.

       node_count
              Should clush display additional (node count) information in buffer header? (yes/no)

       verbosity
              Set the verbosity level: 0 (quiet), 1 (default), 2 (verbose) or more (debug).

       ssh_user
              Set the ssh user to use for remote connection (default is to not specify).

       ssh_path
              Set the ssh binary path to use for remote connection (default is /usr/bin/ssh).

       ssh_options
              Set additional options to pass to the underlying ssh command.

EXAMPLES

       Simple configuration file.

   clush.conf
       [Main]
       fanout: 128
       connect_timeout: 15
       command_timeout: 0
       history_size: 100
       color: auto
       fd_max: 10240
       node_count: yes

FILES

       ~/.clush.conf

              This is the per-user configuration file.

       /etc/clustershell/clush.conf

              System-wide configuration file.

HISTORY

       As  of  ClusterShell  version  1.3, the External section has been removed from clush.conf.
       External commands whose outputs were used by clush (-a, -g, -X) are  now  handled  by  the
       library itself and defined in groups.conf(5).
