       tlog-rec-session.conf - tlog-rec-session configuration file


       tlog-rec-session.conf  is  a  JSON-format configuration file for tlog-rec-session 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.
       Almost all of them are optional and assume  a  default  value.   However,  those  that  do
       require  a  value  can  still  be omitted and specified to tlog-rec-session in other ways:
       through environment variables or command line.


   Root object
       shell (string)
              The path to the shell executable which should be spawned.

              Default: "/bin/bash"

       notice (string)
              A message which will be printed before starting recording and the user  shell.  Can
              be used to warn the user that the session is recorded.

              Default: "\nATTENTION! Your session is being recorded!\n\n"

       latency (integer)
              The  number of seconds to cache captured data for before logging.  The encoded data
              which does not reach payload size stays in memory and  is  not  logged  until  this
              number of seconds elapses.

              Minimum: 1
              Default: 10

       payload (integer)
              The  maximum  encoded  data  (payload) size per message, bytes.  As soon as payload
              exceeds this number of bytes, it is formatted into a message and logged.

              Minimum: 32
              Default: 2048

       log (object)

       burst (integer)
              The  number  of bytes by which logged messages are allowed to exceed the rate limit

              Default: 32768

       action (string)

              limits will be dropped.
