ctdbd - The CTDB cluster daemon
ctdbd is the main CTDB daemon. Note that ctdbd is not usually invoked directly. It is invoked via ctdbd_wrapper(1) or via the initscript. See ctdb(7) for an overview of CTDB.
-d, --debug=DEBUGLEVEL This option sets the debug level to DEBUGLEVEL, which controls what will be written to the logfile. The default is 0 which will only log important events and errors. A larger number will provide additional logging. See the DEBUG LEVELS section in ctdb(7) for more information. --dbdir=DIRECTORY DIRECTORY on local storage where ctdbd keeps a local copy of TDB databases. This directory is local for each node and should not be stored on the shared cluster filesystem. This directory would usually be /var/ctdb --dbdir-persistent=DIRECTORY DIRECTORY on local storage where ctdbd 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. This directory would usually be /etc/ctdb/persistent --dbdir-state=DIRECTORY DIRECTORY on local storage where ctdbd keep internal state TDB files. This directory is local for each node and should not be stored on the shared cluster filesystem. This directory would usually be /var/ctdb/state --event-script-dir=DIRECTORY DIRECTORY where the CTDB event scripts are stored. See the EVENT SCRIPTS section in ctdb(7) for more information. Default is CTDB_BASE/events.d, so usually /etc/ctdb/events.d, which is part of the CTDB installation. --logfile=FILENAME FILENAME where ctdbd will write its log. This is usually /var/log/log.ctdb. --log-ringbuf-size=NUM Set the size of the log ringbuffer to NUM entries. CTDB uses an in-memory ringbuffer containing NUM most recent log entries for all log levels (except DEBUG). The ringbugger can be useful for extracting detailed logs even if some entries are not logged to the regular logs. Use the ctdb getlog command to retrieve log entries from the ringbuffer. --lvs This option is used to activate the LVS capability on a CTDB node. Please see the LVS section in ctdb(7) for more information. --max-persistent-check-errors=NUM NUM specifies the maximum number of health check failures allowed for persistent databases during startup. The default value is 0. Setting this to non-zero allows a node with unhealthy persistent databases to startup and join the cluster as long as there is another node with healthy persistent databases. --nlist=FILENAME FILENAME containing a list of the private IP addresses, one per line, for each node in the cluster. This file must be the same on each node in the cluster. Default is CTDB_BASE/nodes, so usually /etc/ctdb/nodes. --no-lmaster This argument specifies that this node can NOT become an lmaster for records in the database. This means that it will never show up in 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. --no-recmaster This argument specifies that this node can NOT become a recmaster for the database. 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. --notification-script=FILENAME FILENAME specifying a script to be invoked by ctdbd when certain state changes occur. This file is usually /etc/ctdb/notify.sh. Please see the NOTIFICATION SCRIPT section in ctdb(7) for more information. --pidfile=FILENAME FILENAME for file containing process ID of main CTDB daemon. This file is automatically created and removed by CTDB. The default is to not create a PID file. --public_addresses=FILENAME FILENAME specifying a file containing the public IP addresses to use on the cluster when CTDB should use IP takeover. This file contains a list of IP addresses, netmasks and interfaces. CTDB will distribute these public IP addresses appropriately across the available nodes. The IP addresses specified in this file can differ across nodes. This is usually the file /etc/ctdb/public_addresses --public-interface=INTERFACE INTERFACE on which to attach public IP addresses or on which to attach the single-public-ip when used. When using public IP addresses, this is only required if interfaces are not explicitly specified in the public addresses file. --reclock=FILENAME FILENAME is the name of the recovery lock file stored in shared storage that ctdbd uses to prevent split brains from occuring. It is possible to run CTDB without a recovery lock file, but then there will be no protection against split brain if the cluster/network becomes partitioned. Using CTDB without a reclock file is strongly discouraged. --single-public-ip=IPADDR IPADDR specifies the single IP that CTDB will use in conjuction with LVS. Please see the LVS section in ctdb(7) for more information. --start-as-disabled This makes ctdbd start 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. --start-as-stopped This makes ctdbd start in the STOPPED state. To allow the node to take part in the cluster it must be manually continued with the the ctdb enable command. Please see the NODE STATES section in ctdb(7) for more information about the STOPPED state. --syslog Send log messages to syslog instead of the CTDB logfile. This option overrides --logfile. The default is to log to a file. --transport=tcp|infiniband This option specifies which transport to use for ctdbd internode communications. The default is "tcp". The "infiniband" support is not regularly tested. -?, --help Display a summary of options.
-i, --interactive Enable interactive mode. This will make ctdbd run in the foreground and not detach from the terminal. By default ctdbd will detach itself and run in the background as a daemon. --listen=IPADDR This specifies which IP address that ctdbd will bind to. By default ctdbd will bind to the first address it finds in the /etc/ctdb/nodes file that is also present on the local system. This option is only required when you want to run multiple ctdbd daemons/nodes on the same physical host in which case there would be multiple entries in /etc/ctdb/nodes that would match a local interface. --nopublicipcheck This option is used when testing with multiple local daemons on a single machine. It disables checks related to public IP addresses. --nosetsched This is a debugging option. This option is only used when debugging ctdbd. Normally ctdbd will change its scheduler to run as a real-time process. This is the default mode for a normal ctdbd operation to gurarantee that ctdbd always gets the CPU cycles that it needs. This option is used to tell ctdbd to not run as a real-time process and instead run ctdbd as a normal userspace process. This is useful for debugging and when you want to run ctdbd under valgrind or gdb. (You don't want to attach valgrind or gdb to a real-time process.) --socket=FILENAME FILENAME specifies the name of the Unix domain socket that ctdbd will create. This socket is used by local clients to communicate with ctdbd. The default is /tmp/ctdb.socket . You only need to use this option if you plan to run multiple ctdbd daemons on the same physical host, usually for testing. --script-log-level=DEBUGLEVEL This option sets the debug level of event script output to DEBUGLEVEL. The default is ERR (0). See the DEBUG LEVELS section in ctdb(7) for more information. --sloppy-start This is debugging option. This speeds up the initial recovery during startup at the expense of some consistency checking. Don't use this option in production. --torture This option is only used for development and testing of CTDB. It adds artificial errors and failures to the common codepaths in ctdbd to verify that ctdbd can recover correctly from failures. Do not use this option unless you are developing and testing new functionality in CTDB. --valgrinding This is a debugging option. This option is only used when debugging ctdbd. This enables additional debugging capabilities and implies --nosetsched.
