       tlog-play.conf - tlog-play configuration file


       tlog-play.conf is a JSON-format configuration file for tlog-play program.  Contrary to the
       strict JSON specification, both C and C++ style comments are allowed in the file.

       The file must contain a single JSON object with the objects and  fields  described  below.
       Some  of  them are optional and assume a default value.  Those that do require a value can
       still be omitted and specified to tlog-play via command-line options.


   Root object
       reader (string)
              The type of "log reader" to use for retrieving  log  messages.  The  chosen  reader
              needs to be configured using its own dedicated parameters.

              One of: "file", "journal", "es"
              Default: "file"

       file (object)
              File reader object, see below.

       es (object)

       journal (object)
              Systemd journal reader object, see below.

       persist (boolean)
              If true, ignore any keyboard-generated signals and the quit key.

              Default: false

       lax (boolean)
              If true, ignore missing (dropped, or lost) log messages.  Otherwise report an error
              and abort when a message is missing.

              Default: false

   file - File reader object
       path (string)
              The path to the file the "file" reader should read logs from.

              No default.

       match (string)
              The recording id of the recording the "file" reader should seek to for playback.

              No default.

   es - Elasticsearch reader object
       baseurl (string)
              The base URL to request Elasticsearch through. Should not contain query  (?...)  or
              fragment (#...) parts.

              No default.

       query (string)
              The query string to send to Elasticsearch

              No default.

       verbose (boolean)
              If true, enable verbose output on Elasticsearch HTTP client.

              Default: false


       A configuration specifying only the reader:

                  "reader": "file"

       A configuration specifying Elasticsearch reader, along with the base URL.

                  "reader": "es"
                  "es" : {
                      "baseurl": "http://localhost:9200/tlog/tlog/_search"
