Agent Installed Items


The agent file organization follows the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard guidelines on Unix. On Windows the package installs all files under %%ProgramFiles%%\opensvc\ (This directory is referred to as <OSVCROOT> in this documentation).

The package installs the following directory tree:

Git Workspace or Windows Package Unix Packages Reference in docs
<OSVCROOT>/etc /etc/opensvc <OSVCETC>
<OSVCROOT>/tmp /var/tmp/opensvc <OSVCTMP>
<OSVCROOT>/bin /usr/share/opensvc/bin <OSVCBIN>
<OSVCROOT>/var /var/lib/opensvc <OSVCVAR>
<OSVCROOT>/usr/share/doc /usr/share/doc/opensvc <OSVCDOC>
<OSVCROOT>/lib /usr/share/opensvc/lib <OSVCLIB>
<OSVCROOT>/log /var/log/opensvc <OSVCLOG>

Items Role

Path Description
<OSVCETC> Hosts service configurations
<OSVCTMP> Temporary, discardable files
<OSVCBIN> Executables like svcmon, svcmgr
<OSVCBIN>/pkg Executables to create package and optional, site-specific, release scripts (none shipped in the opensvc-provided packages)
<OSVCVAR>/sync Where the production nodes of a cluster back up their configuration. These backups are used in case of disaster recovery activation to restore some specific configurations of the production nodes.
<OSVCVAR>/lock Where executables create the lock-files used to ensure two actions can not run simultaneously on the same service.
<OSVCDOC> Embedded documentation. Most importantly the service resources and node configuration reference files, documenting all possible parameters.
<OSVCLIB> Python source code for the core and resource drivers.
<OSVCLOG> Per-service, local, size-rotated, delay-rotated log files. All logs are also multiplexed to stdout and to the collector via xmlrpc, and optionally multiplexed to syslog.
