famd.conf - The File Alteration Monitor (FAM) configuration file
In addition to its command line options, famd
can also be controlled through its configuration file. By
default, this is /usr/local/etc/fam.conf
. The -c
command line option can be used to specify an alternate file.
Configuration lines are in the format option=value
Lines beginning with #
recognizes the following options:
If set to true, this disables authentication and reduces access security
as described under SECURITY below. This is false by default. Setting
this option to true is the same as using the -C command line
This is the user name or UID of the user account which famd will use for
unauthenticated clients. If a file can't be stated by this user,
famd will not tell unauthenticated clients about the file's existence.
If an untrusted user is not given in the configuration file, famd will
write an error message to the system log and terminate.
If set to true, famd will ignore requests from remote famds.
This is false by default. Setting this option to true is the same
as using the -L command line option. This option is ignored if
famd is started by inetd.
This is the time in seconds that famd will wait before exiting after its last
client disconnects. The default is 5 seconds. This option is overridden
by the -T command line option.
This is the interval in seconds between polling files over an NFS filesystem.
The default is 6 seconds. This option is overridden by the -t
command line option.
If set to true, famd will check the list of exported filesystems
when remote requests are received to verify that the requests fall on
filesystems which are exported to the requesting hosts. This is
true by default. If this option is set to false, famd will
service remote requests without attempting to perform the verification. If
the local_only configuration option or -L command line option is
used, xtab_verification has no effect.
