Environment Config Files¶
Starting from v1.3.3, some environment variables used by launch scripts can be redefined in "environment config files". They have shell syntax and are read by launch scripts.
1 2 3 4
leo_manager_0/etc/leo_manager.environment leo_manager_1/etc/leo_manager.environment leo_gateway/etc/leo_gateway.environment leo_storage/etc/leo_storage.environment
Changing settings in these files is completely optional, but can be used to better organize directories used by LeoFS nodes and simplify upgrades. Here is highly customized example of
.config files that allow LeoFS to store all work information and logs outside of default installation tree (
As a result, upgrade process to newer version becomes as simple as placing
leo_*.environment files in
etc directory of new version, for example (for
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
## Stop the process of LeoManager $ /usr/local/leofs/<old_version>/leo_manager_0/bin/leo_manager stop ## Overwrite the environment file $ cp /usr/local/leofs/<old_version>/leo_manager_0/etc/leo_manager.environment \ /usr/local/leofs/<new_version>/leo_manager_0/etc/ ## Restart the process of LeoManager $ /usr/local/leofs/<new_version>/leo_manager_0/bin/leo_manager start
With this, users can place actual config files (like
leo_manager.conf) to the directory of their choice and change them independently of version upgrades, and the
.environment files that need to be placed into installation tree don't need to be changed between versions. With the correct setup, since no work/temporary files will be kept in the installation tree, old version can be removed cleanly.
Note: When managing nodes through systemd
Please do not use example commands above (
leo_manager stop/start) when running nodes as systemd services for LeoFS v1.3.8 or later, use
systemctl stop/start leofs-manager-master instead.

# pick config file from fixed place RUNNER_ETC_DIR=/etc/leofs/leo_manager_0 # store erlang.log.* and run_erl.log in this directory RUNNER_LOG_DIR=/var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0
Directories defined in
RUNNER_LOG_DIR (in this example,
/var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0) must be writable by
leofs user, also
/var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/sasl) must exist:
1 2 3
drwxr-xr-x. 2 leofs leofs 4096 Apr 4 20:40 /etc/leofs/leo_manager_0/ drwxr-xr-x. 4 leofs leofs 4096 Apr 5 20:00 /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/ drwxr-xr-x. 2 leofs leofs 4096 Apr 4 20:40 /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/sasl/
Paths containing whitespace characters (spaces, tabs, etc) aren't allowed in environment files due to technical reasons.
leo_manager.conf, all options related to directories should point to external paths:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
sasl.sasl_error_log = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/sasl/sasl-error.log sasl.error_logger_mf_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/sasl mnesia.dir = /var/local/leofs/leo_manager_0/work/mnesia/127.0.0.1 queue_dir = /var/local/leofs/leo_manager_0/work/queue log.erlang = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/erlang log.app = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/app log.member_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/ring log.ring_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/ring erlang.crash_dump = /var/log/leofs/leo_manager_0/erl_crash.dump
leo_storage.conf it will be:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
sasl.sasl_error_log = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/sasl/sasl-error.log sasl.error_logger_mf_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/sasl obj_containers.path = [/mnt/avs] log.erlang = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/erlang log.app = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/app log.member_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/ring log.ring_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/ring queue_dir = /var/local/leofs/leo_storage/work/queue leo_ordning_reda.temp_stacked_dir = /var/local/leofs/leo_storage/work/ord_reda/ erlang.crash_dump = /var/log/leofs/leo_storage/erl_crash.dump
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
sasl.sasl_error_log = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/sasl/sasl-error.log sasl.error_logger_mf_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/sasl log.erlang = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/erlang log.app = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/app log.member_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/ring log.ring_dir = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/ring cache.cache_disc_dir_data = /var/local/leofs/leo_gateway/cache/data cache.cache_disc_dir_journal = /var/local/leofs/leo_gateway/cache/journal queue_dir = /var/local/leofs/leo_gateway/work/queue erlang.crash_dump = /var/log/leofs/leo_gateway/erl_crash.dump
All these directories must exist and have correct ownership/permissions (writable by
leofs user, unless set up otherwise)
Additional settings - SNMP config¶
When pursuing "pure" system which keeps all the data out of installation tree, one might also decide to move SNMP agent config and
SNMP db directories to external paths, by setting it in
## leo_manager_0.conf snmp_conf = /etc/leofs/leo_manager_0/leo_manager_snmp
/etc/leofs/leo_manager_0/leo_manager_snmp and setting
/etc/leofs/leo_manager_0/leo_manager_snmp.config to make sure that absolutely no temporary files are created in
/usr/local/leofs tree. It shouldn't matter otherwise since there is no need to keep contents of
SNMP db directory between upgrades.
(Here, copy of leo_manager_snmp.config was made so that original config would be untouched; while it is possible to change
db_dir in original
/usr/local/leofs/<version>/leo_manager_0/snmp/snmpa_manager_0/leo_manager_snmp.config as well, doing so would mean that this file needs to be replaced after each upgrade, reducing benefit of only changing
.environment file after upgrade)
Note that this configuration is just an example of how to use
.environment config features to move all the log files and config files out of the tree so they reside at fixed paths, to simplify configuration changes and upgrades as much as possible.
The resulting upgrade process can be less safe than original one suggested at For Administrators / System Administration / System Migration, because the new version changes working
queue directories upon launch and going back to the older version might be not always possible.
Users should consider making backups of work directories (
/var/local/leofs in this example) before launching the newer version of a node.
