       zorpctl.conf_ - zorpctl(8) configuration file.


       The zorpctl.conf file describes various global options ifluencing the
       behavior of
        zorpctl(8) .  zorpctl(8) processes the file line by line, each line
       having the structure described below. Empty lines and lines beginning
       with '#' are comments and are ignored.


       variable name = variable value

       Each non-empty line specifies a variable name and its value separated
       by the equal sign ('='). The following variables are available:

           Enable the automatic restart feature of zorpctl. Instances in
           auto-restart mode are restarted automatically when they exit.
           Default value: 1 (TRUE).

           If a restarted instance exits within this interval (specified in
           seconds), the restart attempt is considered a failure. Default
           value: 60 seconds.

           Maximum number of restart attempts. If the instance is not
           successfully restarted from AUTO_RESTART_MAX_COUNT attempts, the
           event is logged. Default value: 3.

           Wait AUTO_RESTART_DELAY seconds before attempting to restart the
           Zorp instance.

           The rate (delay in seconds) to check a stopping Zorp instance at.
           Default value: 1.

           The number of seconds to wait for a stopping Zorp instance. Default
           value: 3.

           In auto-restart mode there is no real way to detect whether Zorp
           failed to load or not. Zorpctl waits START_CHECK_TIMEOUT seconds
           and assumes that Zorp loaded successfully if it did not exit within
           this interval. Default value: 5 seconds.

           In no-auto-restart mode the successful loading of a Zorp instance
           can be verified by instructing Zorp to daemonize itself and waiting
           for the parent to exit. This parameter specifies the number of
           seconds to wait for Zorp to daemonize itself. Default value: 60

           The minimum process limit (ulimit -u) used by Zorp in the case when
           the process limit (calculated from the --threads parameter) would
           result a lower value. Default value: 256.

           The number of extra processes to be allocated (e.g.: for proxy
           modules that are known to spawn new processes). Default value: 64.
           This parameter is added to the regular (calculated as the sum of
           the processes of a program allowed to run per user) process limit.

           The expected maximal number of file descriptors openened by the
           threads. The global fd limit is FD_LIMIT_THRESHOLD multiplied by
           the thread limit. Default value: 64.

           The minimum fd limit (ulimit -n) used by Zorp in the case when the
           process limit (calculated from the --threads and FD_LIMIT_THRESHOLD
           parameters) would result a lower value. Default value: 1024.

           Zorp-specific arguments to be appended to the command line of each
           Zorp instance. Also recognised as APPEND_ARGS (deprecated). Default
           value: "".

           Zorpctl-specific arguments to be appended to the command line of
           each instance. Default value: "".

           Specifies whether to check the permissions of the Zorp
           configuration directory. If set, Zorp refuses to run if the
           /etc/zorp directory can be written by user other then zorp Default
           value: 1 (TRUE).

           The path to the Zorp configuration directory to check if
           CHECK_PERMS is enabled. NOTE: it does not change the Zorp policy
           file argument, this parameter is only used by the permission
           validating code. Default value: ${prefix}/etc/zorp .

           The owner/group/permissions values considered valid for the
           configuration directory.  zorpctl fails if the actual
           owner/group/permissions values conflict the ones set here. Default
           values: root.zorp, 0750 .

           The path to the Zorp pid file directory. The directory is created
           automatically prior to starting Zorp if it does not already
           exist.It is created if it does not exist, before NOTE: No --pidfile
           argument is passed to Zorp, only texistance of the directory is
           verified. Default value: /var/run/zorp.

           The owner/group/permission values the pidfile directory is created
           with if it does not exist. Default values: root.root, 0700.


       The default location for zorpctl.conf is /etc/zorp/zorpctl.conf.
