NAME

       zorpctl.conf_ - zorpctl(8) configuration file.

DESCRIPTION

       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.

STRUCTURE

       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:

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

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

       AUTO_RESTART_MAX_COUNT
           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.

       AUTO_RESTART_DELAY
           Wait AUTO_RESTART_DELAY seconds before attempting to restart the Zorp instance.

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

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

       START_CHECK_TIMEOUT
           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.

       START_WAIT_TIMEOUT
           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 seconds.

       PROCESS_LIMIT_MIN
           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.

       PROCESS_LIMIT_RESERVE
           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.

       FD_LIMIT_THRESHOLD
           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.

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

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

       CHECK_PERMS
           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).

       CONFIG_DIR
           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 .

       CONFIG_DIR_OWNER, CONFIG_DIR_GROUP, CONFIG_DIR_MODE
           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 .

       PIDFILE_DIR
           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.

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

FILES

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