Each Orchids module may propose a set of configuration options. To specify options to module module-name, write
<module module-name>, followed by options specific to module-name, one per line, and end them by
By convention, all this should be written in a file named
nn_mod_module-name.conf in the
$OCONF/conf.d directory. This file will be loaded by the
Include @@ETCDIR@@/orchids/conf.d/*.conf directive in
orchids.conf.dist, in standard distributions. The two-digit number nn is arbitrary, and is meant to force the order in which modules are loaded from the
For example, the first module whose configuration is loaded is (typically)
textfile. So you may find the following lines in
<module textfile> PollPeriod 15 # INPUT "/var/log/messages" # ProcessAll 1 # ExitAfterProcessAll 1 </module>
As usual, the sharp sign
# is used to start comments.
Module-specific options are documented on the page of the corresponding module.
