Admin Guide 1. Abiquo. Config Properties

Introduction to Abiquo Properties

Abiquo uses a system based on Java properties that is flexible and easy to configure.

Configuration options are grouped in the file /opt/abiquo/config/abiquo.properties on each server of the Abiquo platform (Abiquo Server, Remote Services, V2V Services). The Abiquo Installer will create configuration files for your installation and example configuration files can be found in the directory /opt/abiquo/config/examples. If you wish to change the configuration options, add the properties you wish to change to your abiquo.properties file and specify the new values. 

The tables below contain all the configuration options that can be modified and their default values as set by Abiquo. The default values for properties are used within the Abiquo platform if you do not set the properties. However, some default configuration options may also be set outside of the Abiquo platform, for example, in the hypervisor. 

After modifying this file, check carefully to ensure you have the correct values and no unnecessary whitespace around the properties. You must restart the abiquo-tomcat service for the changes to take effect.

(star)  – New property 
(warning)  – Changed property
(minus) – Deprecated Property

 – Abiquo Server / API
 – Remote Services
 – V2V Remote Services 
 – Outbound API
  

This table describes the abiquo.properties file of the Abiquo platform servers. For example, if a property is marked with   symbol  in the  column, it can be configured in the abiquo.properties file of the Abiquo Server/API and Abiquo Monolithic Server.

Abiquo Monolithic Server

An Abiquo Monolithic Server is a single-server install of all or most of the Abiquo platform components, so the properties present on the Abiquo Server and the Remote Service machines may not be necessary or may only need to be added once. For example, see the Note on Redis Properties below the table.

The delay in milliseconds added between the creation of actors on VSM startup for each hypervisor or public cloud plugin (PLUGIN).
Default: 0

 

   

abiquo.vsm.backoff.enabled

Enable or disable backoff
Default: false

 

   

abiquo.vsm.max.backoff

Maximum backoff time in seconds between connection errors to reduce load and logging of these errors. A counter has been added to register the number of failed attempts to connect to the hypervisor or public cloud to perform any type of operation. When rescheduling operations, Abiquo will multiply the maximum backoff time by the number of failed connection attempts to determine the wait time until the next try. If a connection is established, the error counter is reset.
