"razor-agent.conf" — Configuration file for Razor Agents

Description

"razor-agent.conf" is a configuration file read by the razor agents, which include razor-check(1), razor-admin(1), razor-report(1), and razor-revoke(1). The format is "attribute = value" pairs, one pair per line. Lines that begin with `#' are treated as comments.

Attributes

Following attributes can be specified:

razorhome
Directory where Razor Agents look for files. All files in "razor-agent.conf" without a full path will be relative to "razorhome". The default is "/etc/razor/" for root, and "~/.razor/" for every other user. If "razorhome" does not exist, it will be created.
logfile
Log file for the Razor Agents. The default is "razor-agent.log".
debuglevel
Controls the amount of messages written to logfile. It is an integer between 0 and 20. For Example, a value of 1 logs only startup and error messages, 5 includes every transaction with the server, and 14 is extremely verbose information intended for debugging use only. NOTE: 15 and higher create debug files on your filesystem -- do not use unless you know what you are doing. The default is 5.
identity
Specify an identify file to use for storing a newly registered identity during razor-admin(1). For razor-report(1) and razor-revoke(1), use this identity when authenticating with Razor Servers. If not specified, "<razorhome>/identity-<user>" is used.
listfile_nomination
File where Razor Nomination Servers are listed, in order of closest TCP ping time. Nomination Servers are used by razor-report(1) and razor-revoke(1). This file is created automatically. The default is "servers.nomination.lst".
listfile_catalogue
File where Razor Catalogue Servers are listed, in order of closest TCP ping time. Catalogue Servers are used by razor-check(1). This file is created automatically. The default is "servers.catalogue.lst".
listfile_discovery
File where Razor Discovery Servers are listed, in random order. This file is created automatically using DNS. The default is "servers.discovery.lst".
rediscovery_wait_dns
Max time in seconds Razor Agents will wait before computing a new "listfile_discovery" using DNS. The default is 604800, which is 7 days.
rediscovery_wait
Max time in seconds Razor Agents will wait before computing a new "listfile_nomination" and a new "listfile_catalogue". The default is 172800, which is 2 days.
turn_off_discovery
Turns off closest host discovery. When set to 1, "listfile_catalogue" and "listfile_nomination" will not be updated and "listfile_discovery" is not read or updated. The default is 0.
ignorelist
Automatically ignore mailing list posts. If set to 0, mailing list posts will be handled like all other mail. The default is 0.
whitelist
Name of whitelist file. Razor Agents can consult a whitelist of addresses and SHA1 hashes before checking a mail with Razor Servers. If the address/hash is found on the whitelist, the mail is marked `not spam', without checking against the server. The format of the whitelist can be found in razor-whitelist(5) manpage. The default is "razor-whitelist".
min_cf
When checking spam, the server optionally returns a spam confidence value ranging from 0 (not confident) to 100 (absolutely or 100% confident). To be considered spam, the server's spam confidence value must be greater than or equal to "min_cf". "min_cf" can be a number or an expression containing ac, the average confidence published by a Razor Server. Examples: 0, 60, 100, ac, ac + 10, ac - 20. If an expression evaluates to less than 0 it becomes 0, likewise those greater than 100 become 100. The default is "ac".
report_headers
When reporting spam, the entire email (headers and body) is sent to a Razor Nomination Server. When set to 0, all the headers are removed except headers beginning with "Content-" before sending, and a special header beginning with "X-Razor2" is added to note this action. The default is 1.
