The following are the spec and example files for pdf_server.conf.
# Version 5.0.4 # # This file contains possible attributes and values you can use to configure Splunk's pdf server. # # There is a pdf_server.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/. To set custom configurations, # place a pdf_server.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. For examples, see pdf_server.conf.example. # You must restart the pdf server to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation # located at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles # GLOBAL SETTINGS # Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings. # * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top of the file. # * Each conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are multiple default # stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of multiple definitions of the same # attribute, the last definition in the file wins. # * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific stanza, the # value in the specific stanza takes precedence. [settings] * Set general Splunk Web configuration options under this stanza name. * Follow this stanza name with any number of the following attribute/value pairs. * If you do not specify an entry for each attribute, Splunk will use the default value. startwebserver = [0|1] * Set whether or not to start the server. * 0 disables Splunk Web, 1 enables it. * Defaults to 1. httpport = <port_number> * Must be present for the server to start. * If omitted or 0 the server will NOT start an http listener. * If using SSL, set to the HTTPS port number. * Defaults to 9000. enableSplunkWebSSL = [True|False] * Toggle between http or https. * Set to true to enable https and SSL. * Defaults to False. privKeyPath = /certs/privkey.pem caCertPath = /certs/cert.pem * Specify paths and names for Web SSL certs. * Path is relative to $SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk. supportSSLV3Only = [True|False] * Allow only SSLv3 connections if true. * NOTE: Enabling this may cause some browsers problems. root_endpoint = <URI_prefix_string> * Defines the root URI path on which the appserver will listen. * Default setting is '/'. * For example: if you want to proxy the splunk UI at http://splunk:8000/splunkui, then set root_endpoint = /splunkui static_endpoint = <URI_prefix_string> * Path to static content. * The path here is automatically appended to root_endpoint defined above. * Default is /static. static_dir = <relative_filesystem_path> * The directory that actually holds the static content. * This can be an absolute URL if you want to put it elsewhere. * Default is share/splunk/search_mrsparkle/exposed. enable_gzip = [True|False] * Determines if web server applies gzip compression to responses. * Defaults to True. # # cherrypy HTTP server config # server.thread_pool = <integer> * Specifies the numbers of threads the app server is allowed to maintain. * Defaults to 10. server.socket_host = <ip_address> * Host values may be any IPv4 or IPv6 address, or any valid hostname. * The string 'localhost' is a synonym for '127.0.0.1' (or '::1', if your hosts file prefers IPv6). The string '0.0.0.0' is a special IPv4 entry meaning "any active interface" (INADDR_ANY), and '::' is the similar IN6ADDR_ANY for IPv6. * The empty string or None are not allowed. * Defaults to 0.0.0.0 log.access_file = <filename> * Specifies the HTTP access log filename. * Stored in default Splunk /var/log directory. * Defaults to pdf_access.log log.error_file = <filename> * Specifies the HTTP error log filename. * Stored in default Splunk /var/log directory. * Defaults to pdf_service.log log.screen = [True|False] * Indicates if runtime output is displayed inside an interactive tty. * Defaults to True request.show_tracebacks = [True|False] * Indicates if an exception traceback is displayed to the user on fatal exceptions. * Defaults to True engine.autoreload_on = [True|False] * Indicates if the app server will auto-restart if it detects a python file has changed. * Defaults to False tools.sessions.on = True * Indicates if user session support is enabled. * Should always be True tools.sessions.timeout = <integer> * Specifies the number of minutes of inactivity before a user session expires. * Defaults to 60 response.timeout = <integer> * Specifies the number of seconds to wait for the server to complete a response. * Some requests such as uploading large files can take a long time. * Defaults to 7200 tools.sessions.storage_type = [file] tools.sessions.storage_path = <filepath> * Specifies the session information storage mechanisms. * Comment out these two lines to use RAM based sessions instead. * Use an absolute path to store sessions outside of the Splunk directory tree. * Defaults to storage_type=file, storage_path=var/run/splunk tools.decode.on = [True|False] * Indicates if all strings that come into CherryPy controller methods are decoded as unicode (assumes UTF-8 encoding). * WARNING: Disabling this will likely break the application, as all incoming strings are assumed to be unicode. * Defaults to True tools.encode.on = [True|False] * Encodes all controller method response strings into UTF-8 str objects in Python. * WARNING: Disabling this will likely cause high byte character encoding to fail. * Defaults to True tools.encode.encoding = <codec> * Force all outgoing characters to be encoded into UTF-8. * This only works with tools.encode.on set to True. * By setting this to utf-8, CherryPy's default behavior of observing the Accept-Charset header is overwritten and forces utf-8 output. Only change this if you know a particular browser installation must receive some other character encoding (Latin-1, iso-8859-1, etc.). * WARNING: Change this at your own risk. * Defaults to utf-8 pid_path = <filepath> * Specifies the path to the PID file. * Defaults to var/run/splunk/splunkweb.pid. firefox_cmdline = <cmdline> * Specifies additional arguments to pass to Firefox. * This should normally not be set. max_queue = <integer> * Specifies the maximum size of the backlog of pending report requests. * Once the backlog is reached the server will return an error on receiving additional requests. * Defaults to 10. max_concurrent = <integer> * Specifies the maximum number of copies of Firefox that the report server will use concurrently to render reports. * Increase only if the host machine has multiple cores and plenty of spare memory. * Defaults to 2. Xvfb = <path> * Pathname to the Xvfb program. * Defaults to searching the PATH. xauth = <path> * Pathname to the xauth program. * Defaults to searching the PATH. mcookie = <path> * Pathname to the mcookie program. * Defaults to searching the PATH. appserver_ipaddr = <ip_networks> * If set, the PDF server will only query Splunk app servers on IP addresses within the IP networks specified here. * Networks can be specified as a prefix (10.1.0.0/16) or using a netmask (10.1.0.0/255.255.0.0). * IPv6 addresses are also supported. * Individual IP addresses can also be listed (22.214.171.124). * Multiple networks should be comma separated. * Defaults to accepting any IP address. client_ipaddr = <ip_networks> * If set, the PDF server will only accept requests from hosts whose IP address falls within the IP networks specified here. * Generally this setting should match the appserver_ipaddr setting. * Format matches appserver_ipaddr. * Defaults to accepting any IP address. screenshot_enabled = [True|False] * If enabled allows screenshots of the X server to be taken for debugging purposes. * Enabling this is a potential security hole as anyone on an IP address matching client_ipaddr will be able to see reports in progress. * Defaults to False.
# Version 5.0.4 # # This is an example pdf_server.conf.
