Unless otherwise instructed, a FairCom Server starts using default settings for all configurable parameters. The FairCom Server takes configuration instructions from a raw text configuration file, ctsrvr.cfg, placed in the <faircom>/config directory. When the FairCom Server finds this file, it uses all the specified configuration values.
Note: Your vendor may also provide a settings file that is not user-configurable, ctsrvr.set.
Note: Keep in mind that the ctsrvr.cfg file needs to be saved in a Unix text file format. Failure to do so may cause an error to occur.
The FairCom Server allows keywords to be entered from the command-line when it is being started. For example, the following shows setting the Index and Data cache sizes to 1 million bytes each:
./ctsrvr IDX_MEMORY 1000000 DAT_MEMORY 1000000
The command-line entries take precedence over any settings in ctsrvr.set, which takes precedence over ctsrvr.cfg.
Examples of reasons the FairCom Server may need to be reconfigured are:
