crio.conf — CRI-O configuration file

Description

The CRI-O configuration file specifies all of the available command-line options for the crio(8) program, but in a TOML format that can be more easily modified and versioned.

Format

The [TOML format][toml] is used as the encoding of the configuration file. Every option and subtable listed here is nested under a global "crio" table. No bare options are used. The format of TOML can be simplified to:

[table]
option = value

[table.subtable1]
option = value

[table.subtable2]
option = value

Crio Table

The crio table supports the following options:

root=""
 CRIO root dir (default: "/var/lib/containers/storage")

runroot=""
 CRIO state dir (default: "/var/run/containers/storage")

storage_driver=""
 CRIO storage driver (default is "overlay")

Note:
 overlay and overlay2 are the same driver

storage_option=[]
 CRIO storage driver option list (no default)

Values:

"STORAGE_DRIVER.imagestore=/PATH",

Paths to additional container image stores. These are read/only and are usually stored on remote network shares, based on overlay storage format.
storage_option=[ "overlay.imagestore=/mnt/overlay", ]

"STORAGE_DRIVER.size=SIZE"

Maximum size of a container image.  Default is 10GB. The size flag sets quota on the size of container images.
storage_option=[ "overlay.size=1G", ]

Note: Not all drivers support all options.

Note:  In order to use the size option for quota on overlay storage you must use the xfs file system.  The mount point that the overlay file system must be setup with the pquota flag at mount time. If you are setting up / to be used with quota, you have to modify the linux boot line in /etc/grubq2.conf and add the rootflags=pquota flag.

Example:
   linux16 /vmlinuz-4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/fedora-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rhgb quiet LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rootflags=pquota

Crio.API Table

listen=""
 Path to crio socket (default: "/var/run/crio.sock")

Crio.Runtime Table

conmon=""
 Path to the conmon executable (default: "/usr/local/libexec/crio/conmon")

conmon_env=[]
 Environment variable list for conmon process (default: ["PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin",])

log_size_max=""
 Maximum sized allowed for the container log file (default: -1)
 Negative numbers indicate that no size limit is imposed.
 If it is positive, it must be >= 8192 (to match/exceed conmon read buffer).
 The file is truncated and re-opened so the limit is never exceeded.

pids_limit=""
 Maximum number of processes allowed in a container (default: 1024)

enable_shared_pid_namespace=""
 Enable using a shared PID namespace for containers in a pod (default: false)

runtime=""
 OCI runtime path (default: "/usr/bin/runc")

selinux=true|false
 Enable selinux support (default: false)

signature_policy=""
 Path to the signature policy json file (default: "", to use the system-wide default)

seccomp_profile=""
 Path to the seccomp json profile to be used as the runtime's default (default: "/etc/crio/seccomp.json")

apparmor_profile=""
 Name of the apparmor profile to be used as the runtime's default (default: "crio-default")

no_pivot=true|false
 Instructs the runtime to not use pivot_root, but instead use MS_MOVE

default_mounts=[]
 List of mount points, in the form host:container, to be mounted in every container

Crio.Image Table

default_transport
 A prefix to prepend to image names that can't be pulled as-is (default: "docker://")

image_volumes=""
 Image volume handling ('mkdir', 'bind' or 'ignore') (default: "mkdir")
 mkdir: A directory is created inside the container root filesystem for the volumes.
 bind: A directory is created inside container state directory and bind mounted into
 the container for the volumes.
 ignore: All volumes are just ignored and no action is taken.

insecure_registries=""
 Enable insecure registry  communication,  i.e.,  enable  un-encrypted
 and/or untrusted communication.

List  of  insecure registries can contain an element with CIDR notation
 to specify a whole  subnet.  Insecure  registries  accept  HTTP  and/or
 accept HTTPS with certificates from unknown CAs.

Enabling  --insecure-registry  is useful when running a local registry.
 However, because its use creates  security  vulnerabilities  it  should
 ONLY  be  enabled  for testing purposes.  For increased security, users
 should add their CA to their system's list of trusted  CAs  instead  of
 using --insecure-registry.

pause_command=""
 Path to the pause executable in the pause image (default: "/pause")

pause_image=""
 Image which contains the pause executable (default: "kubernetes/pause")

registries=""
 Comma separated list of registries that will be prepended when pulling
 unqualified images

Crio.Network Table

network_dir=""
 Path to CNI configuration files (default: "/etc/cni/net.d/")

plugin_dir=""
 Path to CNI plugin binaries (default: "/opt/cni/bin/")
