Configuring Swarm Storage

This section describes how to configure a Swarm storage cluster.

To configure a new cluster, modify the configuration (.cfg) file according to the implementation type:

  • A cluster uses a cluster.cfg if the cluster boots from CSN or Platform Server.

  • Prepare a node.cfg and boot one of the following ways if the cluster does not boot from CSN or Platform Server:

    • PXE boot the cluster

    • Boot the cluster using a centralized configuration server

    • Boot from a USB flash drive (requires an update to the caringo/node.cfg file in each node with identical settings)


Because of the variety of ways clusters can be configured, the configuration file is referred to generally as the cluster/node config. Understand it to mean the CFG file where Swarm accesses settings for a specific individual cluster.
