true: execute '<script> status' on status evaluation. false: do nothing on status evaluation. <shlex expression>: execute the command on status evaluation.

check_timeout

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert duration

Wait for <duration> before declaring the app launcher check action a failure. Takes precedence over timeout. If neither timeout nor check_timeout is set, the agent waits indefinitely for the app launcher to return. A timeout can be coupled with optional=true to not abort a servicea instance check when an app launcher did not return.

cwd

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

Change the working directory to the specified location instead of the default <pathtmp>.

disable

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

A disabled resource will be ignored on service startup and shutdown. Its status is always reported n/a.

Set in DEFAULT, the whole service is disabled. A disabled service does not honor start and stop actions. These actions immediately return success.

sudo svcmgr -s <svcname> disable only sets DEFAULT.disable. As resources disabled state is not changed, sudo svcmgr -s <svcname> enable does not enable disabled resources.

encap

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

Set to True to ignore this resource in the nodes context and consider it in the encapnodes context. The resource is thus handled by the agents deployed in the service containers.

group

info_timeout

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert duration

Wait for <duration> before declaring the app launcher info action a failure. Takes precedence over timeout. If neither timeout nor info_timeout is set, the agent waits indefinitely for the app launcher to return. A timeout can be coupled with optional=true to not abort a servicea instance info when an app launcher did not return.

A down monitored resource will trigger a node suicide if the monitor thinks it should be up and the resource can not be restarted.

optional

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default True for tasks, syncs and resources tagged 'noaction', else False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert tristate

Action failures on optional resources are logged but do not stop the action sequence. Also the optional resource status is not aggregated to the instance 'availstatus', but aggregated to the 'overallstatus'. Resource tagged 'noaction' and sync resources are automatically considered optional. Useful for resources like dump filesystems for example.

pg_blkio_weight

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
depends create_pg in [True]
convert integer

required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
depends create_pg in [True]

The percent ratio of one core to allocate to the process group if % is specified, else the absolute value to set in the process group parameter. For example, on Linux cgroups, -1 means unlimited, and a positive absolute value means the number of microseconds to allocate each period. 50%@all means 50% of all cores, and 50%@2 means 50% of two cores.

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
depends create_pg in [True]
convert integer

Kernel default value is used, which usually is 1024 shares. In a cpu-bound situation, ensure the service does not use more than its share of cpu ressource. The actual percentile depends on shares allowed to other services.

pg_cpus

required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
depends create_pg in [True]

Allow service process to bind only the specified cpus. Cpus are specified as list or range : 0,1,2 or 0-2

pg_mem_limit

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic
depends create_pg in [True]
convert integer

A flag (0 or 1) that enables or disables the Out of Memory killer for a cgroup. If enabled (0), tasks that attempt to consume more memory than they are allowed are immediately killed by the OOM killer. The OOM killer is enabled by default in every cgroup using the memory subsystem; to disable it, write 1.

pg_mem_swappiness

provision

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default True
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

Set to false to skip the resource on provision and unprovision actions. Warning: provisioning implies destructive operations like formating. Unprovisioning does not keep a copy of the service data.

provision_requires

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default  
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

A whitespace-separated list of conditions to meet to accept running a 'provision' action. A condition is expressed as <rid>(<state>,...). If states are omitted, 'up,stdby up' is used as the default expected states.

restart

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default 0
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert integer

The agent will try to restart a resource n times before falling back to the monitor action. A resource restart is triggered if the resource is not disabled and its status is not up, and the node is not frozen, and the service instance is not frozen and its local expect is set to 'started'. If a resource has a restart set to a value >0, its status is evaluated at the frequency defined by DEFAULT.monitor_schedule instead of the frequency defined by DEFAULT.status_schedule.

script

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

Full path to the app launcher script. Or its basename if the file is hosted in the <svcname>.d path. This script must accept as arg0 the activated actions word: start for start, stop for stop, status for check, info for info.

shared

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

Set to True to skip the resource on provision and unprovision actions if the action has already been done by a peer. Shared resources, like vg built on SAN disks must be provisioned once. All resources depending on a shared resource must also be flagged as shared.

standby

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

Always start the resource, even on standby instances. The daemon is responsible for starting standby resources. A resource can be set standby on a subset of nodes using keyword scoping.

A typical use-case is sync'ed fs on non-shared disks: the remote fs must be mounted to not overflow the underlying fs.

Warning

Don't set shared resources standby: fs on shared disks for example.

start

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

true: execute '<script> start' on start action. false: do nothing on start action. <shlex expression>: execute the command on start.

start_requires

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default  
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

A whitespace-separated list of conditions to meet to accept running a 'start' action. A condition is expressed as <rid>(<state>,...). If states are omitted, 'up,stdby up' is used as the default expected states.

start_timeout

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert duration

Wait for <duration> before declaring the app launcher start action a failure. Takes precedence over timeout. If neither timeout nor start_timeout is set, the agent waits indefinitely for the app launcher to return. A timeout can be coupled with optional=true to not abort a servicea instance start when an app launcher did not return.

status_log

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert boolean

Redirect the checker script stdout to the resource status info-log, and stderr to warn-log. The default is false, for it is common the checker scripts outputs are not tuned for opensvc.

stop

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default False
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

true: execute '<script> stop' on stop action. false: do nothing on stop action. <shlex expression>: execute the command on stop action.

stop_requires

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default  
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

A whitespace-separated list of conditions to meet to accept running a 'stop' action. A condition is expressed as <rid>(<state>,...). If states are omitted, 'up,stdby up' is used as the default expected states.

stop_timeout

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert duration

Wait for <duration> before declaring the app launcher stop action a failure. Takes precedence over timeout. If neither timeout nor stop_timeout is set, the agent waits indefinitely for the app launcher to return. A timeout can be coupled with optional=true to not abort a servicea instance stop when an app launcher did not return.

subset

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf
scope order specific > generic

Assign the resource to a specific subset.

tags

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default  
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert set

A list of tags. Arbitrary tags can be used to limit action scope to resources with a specific tag. Some tags can influence the driver behaviour. For example 'noaction' avoids any state changing action from the driver and implies optional=true, 'nostatus' forces the status to n/a.

timeout

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
convert duration

Wait for <duration> before declaring the app launcher action a failure. Can be overriden by <action>_timeout. If no timeout is set, the agent waits indefinitely for the app launcher to return. A timeout can be coupled with optional=true to not abort a servicea instance start when an app launcher did not return.

unprovision

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default True
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic
candidates True | False
convert boolean

Set to false to skip the resource on unprovision actions. Warning: Unprovisioning does not keep a copy of the service data.

unprovision_requires

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default  
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

A whitespace-separated list of conditions to meet to accept running a 'unprovision' action. A condition is expressed as <rid>(<state>,...). If states are omitted, 'up,stdby up' is used as the default expected states.

user

scopable True
required False
provisioning False
default None
inheritance leaf > head
scope order specific > generic

If the binary is owned by the root user, run it as the specified user instead of root.
