DESCRIPTION

ipa_st_sdb is an IPA statistics module with the following features:
- The module reads data from the ipa_sdb(5) database;
- The module completely supports rules, limits and thresholds.
The name of the statistics system is sdb.

CONFIGURATION FILE FORMAT

Configuration for the module is integrated to the ipa.conf(5) file. The configuration prefix of this module is ‘‘sdb’’.

The sdb:db_dir parameter allows to define the main database directory (the default value is /var/ipa_sdb):

sdb:db_dir = "/path/to/directory";

This parameter can be placed in global or rule section.

Static and dynamic rules inherit this parameter from the global section. Since it can be placed in the rule section, then any rule can have own main directory for its database files and directories.

Next parameters can be placed only in the sdb: module’s section:

sdb: {
    /* Parameters. */
}

By default the module disallows using of symlinks in the database. To allow symlinks in the database set the allow_symlinks parameter to ‘‘yes’’ (the default value is ‘‘no’’):

sdb: {
    allow_symlinks = <boolean>;
}

The main database directory has a special file containing the version number of the database format and the module checks version saved in this file. To speedup the module startup in case if many main database directories are used it is possible to turn off database format version checking in the check_version parameter by setting it to ‘‘no’’ (the default value is ‘‘yes’’):

sdb: {
    check_version = <boolean>;
}

It is not recommended to turn off database format version checking.

By default the module is very quiet and does not send any log messages until any error occurs. To see all messages from the module set the quiet parameter to ‘‘no’’ (the default value is ‘‘yes’’):

sdb: {
    quiet = <boolean>;
}

Example:

st_mod "ipa_st_sdb.so";

global { /* ... */ st_list = sdb; sdb:db_dir = "/var/db/ipa_sdb"; }

rule 1 { /* ... */ }

rule 2 { /* ... */ sdb:db_dir = "/home/my/ipa_sdb"; }

First rule inherits value of the sdb:db_dir parameter from the global section. Second rule has own value for this parameter. All dynamic rules will inherit the value of the sdb:db_dir parameter from the global section.
