NCAKMOD.CONF(4) File Formats and Configurations NCAKMOD.CONF(4)


NAME


ncakmod.conf - ncakmod configuration file

SYNOPSIS


/etc/nca/ncakmod.conf


DESCRIPTION


The ncakmod.conf file is used to configure the Solaris Network Cache and
Accelerator ("NCA") kernel module. The file contains two fields, key and
value.


The status key is used to indicate if the user wants to have NCA turned
on as a feature. If the value of status key is enabled, then the NCA
kernel module will be pushed on to the specified interfaces. If the
value of the status key is disabled, then the NCA kernel module will not
be pushed on to any interfaces . The default is disabled.


The httpd_door_path key specifies the path name of the Solaris Door RPC
mechanism that will be used to communicate with the http daemon. The
default value is /var/run/nca_httpd_1.door.


Use the nca_active key to indicate whether to allow NCA to actively open
outgoing TCP connections. The default value for nca_active is disabled.
If set to enabled, ncaconfd sets up NCA for each interface and then
operates as a daemon, allowing NCA to make outgoing TCP connections. This
functionality is possible only by using the doors interface to NCA. A web
server that uses the sockets interface with PF_NCA or ncad_addr.so cannot
connect by means of nca_active.


NCA supports the logging of in-kernel cache hits. See ncalogd.conf(4).
NCA stores logs in a binary format. Use the ncab2clf(1) utility to
convert the log from a binary format to the Common Log File format.


In order to implement changes to the ncakmod.conf file, you will need to
reboot.
