NAME

kopano-archiver.cfg - The Kopano archiver configuration file

SYNOPSIS

archiver.cfg

DESCRIPTION

The archiver.cfg is a configuration file for the Kopano Archiver. archiver.cfg contains instructions for the software to set up the logging system and specific actions the archiver can do.

FILE FORMAT

The file consists of one big section, but parameters can be grouped by functionality.
The parameters are written in the form:
name = value
The file is line-based. Each newline-terminated line represents either a comment, nothing, a parameter or a directive. A line beginning with `#' is considered a comment, and will be ignored by Kopano. Parameter names are case sensitive. Lines beginning with `!' are directives.
Directives are written in the form:
! directive [argument(s)]
The following directives exist:
include
Include and process argument
 
Example: !include common.cfg

EXPLANATION OF EACH PARAMETER

server_socket
Unix socket to find the connection to the Kopano server.
 
Default: file:///var/run/kopano/server.sock
sslkey_file
Use this file as key to logon to the server. This is only used when server_socket is set to an HTTPS transport. See the kopano-server(8) manual page on how to setup SSL keys.
 
Default: value not set.
sslkey_pass
The password of the SSL key file that is set in sslkey_file.
 
Default: value not set.
archive_enable
Specifies if the archive step will be performed. The archive step is basically the copy to the archive.
 
Default: yes
archive_after
Specifies the age in days of a message before it will be archived.
 
Default: 30
stub_enable
Specifies if the stub step will be performed. Stubbing is the process of removing the data from a message and only leaving a reference to one or more archived versions of that message. When such a message is opened it will be de-stubbed on the fly, leaving the user with a normal message to work with.
 
A message will never be stubbed if it's not yet archived.
 
Default: no
stub_unread
Specifies if unread messages will be stubbed.
 
Default: no
stub_after
Specifies the age in days of a message before it will be stubbed.
 
Default: 0
delete_enable
Specifies if the delete step will be performed. The delete step deletes messages from the users store if they're old enough. This way even more space is freed.
 
A message will never be deleted if it's not yet archived.
 
A message will never be deleted from the archive.
 
Default: no
delete_unread
Specifies if unread messages will be deleted.
 
Default: no
delete_after
Specifies the age in days of a message before it will be deleted.
 
Default: 0
purge_enable
Specifies if message will be purged from the archive after a certain amount of time.
 
Default: no
purge_after
Specifies the age in days of a message before it will be purged. *Note that the age is measured from the time it was originally delivered in the primay store.
 
Default: 0
track_history
Specifies the behaviour of the archiver when re-archiving messages that were changed after they were archived. When track_history is set to no, the archived version will be updated to contain the most actual information. When track_history is set to yes, a new copy of the message will be created in the archive, and the previous version is linked to it. This way the change history can be tracked.
 
Default: no
cleanup_action
Specify what action should be taken on archive messages whose primary message has been deleted. The options are 'store' and 'delete', meaning store the archived message in a special 'Deleted' folder or delete the archived messages respectively.
 
Default: store
cleanup_follow_purge_after
Specify if items that are cleaned up from the archive are at least the age that is specified in the purge_after setting. This is to avoid messages being deleted from the archive when they where deleted from the primary store by a delete operation. Note that setting to yes, will cause a cleanup run to seemingly do nothing. A rule of thumb is to set this to the same value as delete_enable. So when delete_enable is set to yes, make sure cleanup_follow_purge_after is also set to yes.
 
Default: no
enable_auto_attach
Specify whether on each archive run an auto-attach run is performed in order to match the attached archives to the requested state as specified in LDAP or ADS.
 
Default: no
auto_attach_writable
Specify whether an auto attached archive will be granted write permissions for the user it's attached to.
 
Default: yes
log_method
The method which should be used for logging. Valid values are:
syslog
Use the Linux system log. All messages will be written to the mail facility. See also syslog.conf(5).
file
Log to a file. The filename will be specified in log_file.
 
Default: file
log_file
When logging to a file, specify the filename in this parameter. Use - (minus sign) for stderr output.
 
Default: -
log_timestamp
Specify whether to prefix each log line with a timestamp in 'file' logging mode.
 
Default: 1
log_buffer_size
Buffer logging in what sized blocks. The special value 0 selects line buffering.
 
Default: 0
log_level
The level of output for logging in the range from 0 to 5. 0 means no logging, 5 means full logging.
 
Default: 2
pid_file
The location of the pid file used to guarantee only one instance of kopano-archiver is running in non-administrative mode.
 
Default: /var/run/kopano/archiver.pid
