NAME corosync-objctl - Configure objects in the Object Database

SYNOPSIS corosync-objctl [-b] [-c|-w|-d|-a|-t-h] <OBJECT-SPEC>...

DESCRIPTION corosync-objctl is used to configure objects within the object database at runtime.

OBJECT-SPEC There are two types of entities Objects and Key=Value pairs

Objects Objects are container like entities that can hold other enti- ties. They are specified as "objectA"."objectB". An example is logging.logger.

Key=Value pairs These are the entities that actually hold values (read database "fields"). They are specified as object.key=value or just object.key if you are reading.

OPTIONS -c Create a new object.

-d Delete an existing object.

-w Use this option when you want to write a new value to a key.

-a Display all values currently available.

-t Track changes to an object and its children. As changes are made to the object they are printed out. this is kind of like a "tail -f" for the object database.

-h Print basic usage.

-b Display binary values in BASH backslash escape sequences format.

EXAMPLES Print the objOne object (shouldnt exist yet). $ corosync-objctl objOne

Create the objOne object. $ corosync-objctl -c objOne

Print the objOne object (empty). $ corosync-objctl objOne objOne

Write two new keys to the objOne object. $ corosync-objctl -w objOne.max=3000 objOne.min=100

Print the objOne object (with the two new keys). $ corosync-objctl objOne objOne.min=100 objOne.max=3000

Delete the objOne.min key $ corosync-objctl -d objOne.min=100

Prove that is gone. $ corosync-objctl objOne objOne.max=3000

Delete the whole objOne object. $ corosync-objctl -d objOne

Prove that is gone. $ corosync-objctl objOne
