NAME

       config-gfarm-update - upgrades/updates metadata server of Gfarm

SYNOPSIS

       config-gfarm-update [options]

       config-gfarm-update --update [options]

DESCRIPTION

       config-gfarm-update upgrades/updates the backend database of a metadata server. Unless the
       metadata server is configured as the private mode, the root privilege is required to run
       this command. It reads the configuration file for gfmd (gfmd.conf), in order to get
       information for accessing the backend database.

       config-gfarm-update can enable the following features of the backend database:

       ·   XML Path Language (XPath) support [-X]

       ·   Metadata replication among metadata servers [-r]

       ·   Checksum calculation [-d]

       Whether the backend database supports those features or not is initially configured by
       config-gfarm. If you would like to enable a feature after the configuration, run
       config-gfarm-update --update with an option surrounded by [ ] in the list above.

       config-gfarm-update is also used for upgrading the backend database. Sometimes Gfarm
       contains incompatible changes against older releases. With --update option,
       config-gfarm-update edits table schema and/or data in the database for upgrading, if
       needed.

       When you update/upgrade the metadata server, you must stop gfmd beforehand. If there are
       some metadata servers in a file system, run config-gfarm-update on every metadata servers.
       After the update/upgrade, it starts a metadata server on the host.

       Like config-gfarm, also config-gfarm-update has -t option which shows values of all
       configurable parameters, like this:

           $ config-gfarm-update -t
           prefix [--prefix]:
           metadata backend    [-b]: postgresql
           metadata directory  [-l]: /var/gfarm-pgsql
           postgresql admin user        [-U]: postgres
           postgresql admin password    [-W]: (auto generated)
           postgresql user              [-u]: gfarm
           postgresql password          [-w]: (auto generated)
           postgresql prefix            [-P]: /usr
           postgresql version           [-V]: 8.4
           postgresql XML supported     [-X]: no
           postgresql data checksum support
                                        [-E]: no
           portmaster port              [-p]: 10602
           metadata replication         [-r]: yes
           metadata journal directory   [-j]: /var/gfarm-metadata/journal
           digest type                  [-d]: md5

       It is recommended to execute config-gfarm-update -t before update/upgrade.

       In case that the backend database is PostgreSQL and config-gfarm-update is executed
       without --update option, psql command is invoked.  psql is a front-end terminal to the
       backend database. It enables you to type in queries interactively. This is useful since a
       connection from psql to the PostgreSQL server is established automatically.

OPTIONS

       --prefix path
           If this option is given, config-gfarm-update reads PREFIX/etc/gfmd.conf as the
           configuration file of gfmd. By default, it reads %%SYSCONFDIR%%/etc/gfmd.conf.

       -P prefix
           Specify an installation prefix of the backend database (e.g. /usr/local). When
           config-gfarm-update executes a PostgreSQL command such as psql, it assumes the command
           is installed under the given prefix. If this option is omitted, config-gfarm-update
           searches directories listed in the environment variable PATH for the commands.

       -l path
           Specify a path to the directory where the backend database puts files to store
           metadata of Gfarm.

           If the backend database is PostgreSQL, the directory is commonly called PGDATA
           directory. The default is PREFIX/var/gfarm-pgsql where PREFIX is a prefix given by
           --prefix option.

       -f file
           When config-gfarm-update invokes psql as a front-end terminal to PostgreSQL,
           config-gfarm-update passes -f option and the given file argument to psql.  psql
           interprets commands written in the file, instead of reading commands interactively.
           This option is ignored when also --update option is specified.

       -o option
           When config-gfarm-update invokes psql as a front-end terminal to PostgreSQL,
           config-gfarm-update also passes the given option to psql. This option is ignored when
           also --update option is specified.

       -j file
           Specify a path to the directory where gfmd puts journal files. The default value is
           PREFIX/var/gfarm-metadata/journal where PREFIX is a prefix given by --prefix option.

       --help
           Show usage, then exit.

       -t
           Show values of configurable parameters in human readable format, then exit
           immediately.

       -N
           Do not start gfmd after update/upgrade. This option takes effect only when also
           --update option is specified.

       -r
           Enable metadata replication among metadata servers. This option takes effect only when
           also --update option is specified.

       -d
           Enable checksum calculation and specify the digest type of the checksum. The
           digest_type argument is a lower-case name which is supported by the OpenSSL library on
           the host, such as "md5".

       -X
           Enable XML Path Language (XPath) support for querying XML extended attributes. This
           option takes effect only when also --update option is specified.
