Configuration variables for FTS and FTA services

IMPORTANT NOTE!!: Updated documentation for the configuration of FTS/FTA is now under

These are all the necessary variables to configure the File Transfer Monitor service.

There are two example files coming in /opt/glite/yaim/examples/siteinfo. The site-info.def file, containing general variables and the services directory, containing the node type specific variables. Please, remember to move these files into your appropriate siteinfo directory where you store the YAIM configuration. You can also put all the variables together in the same file. For more details please check The configuration variables section in the YAIM guide.

  • Mandatory general variables: they can be found in opt/glite/yaim/examples/site-info.def and they are described in the site-info.def variables section in the YAIM Guide: INSTALL_ROOT, USERS_CONF, GROUPS_CONF, VOS, MON_HOST, REG_HOST, BDII_HOST, SITE_NAME, FTS_HOST_ALIAS, PX_HOST, ORACLE_LOCATION.

  • FTA/FTS specific variables
    • Mandatory variables: they can be found in /opt/glite/yaim/examples/services/glite-fts. Sys admins must ensure these variables are properly defined according to the features of the site.

    • Default variables: sys admins don't need to change the value of these variables unless they know what they are doing. These variables have a meaningful default value provided by YAIM and can be found in /opt/glite/yaim/defaults/glite-fts.pre. Their value can be reset in your site-info.def file if necessary. Check the defaults directory section for more details.
