The following MultiCloud Images (MCIs) are used by the ServerTemplate. The MCIs determine which operating systems and clouds are supported.
Defines how frequently EBS snapshot backups should be taken. By default, backup snapshots are taken every hour. Define the frequency in standard crontab format (example: 1 * * * * ). If set to "ignore" hourly backups will begin at a random time.
The number of daily snapshots (backups) to keep (i.e. rotation size). A daily backup is defined as the latest completed snapshot of a day that is closest to the end of the day (23:59:59). (Default: 14) See "Archiving of EBS Snapshots" on RightScale's Support site for further details on the archiving logic.
The total number of snapshots to keep. When this limit has been reached, the oldest snapshot will be deleted. (Default: 60) See "Archiving of EBS Snapshots" on RightScale's Support site for further details on the archiving logic.
The number of monthly snapshots to keep (i.e. rotation size). (Default: 12) See "Archiving of EBS Snapshots" on RightScale's Support site for further details on the archiving logic.
The number of weekly snapshots to keep (i.e. rotation size). (Default: 6) See "Archiving of EBS Snapshots" on RightScale's Support site for further details on the archiving logic.
The number of yearly snapshots to keep (i.e. rotation size). (Default: 2) See "Archiving of EBS Snapshots" on RightScale's Support site for further details on the archiving logic.
The lineage of the EBS volume. The string will be used to name/locate all volumes in a striped EBS volume set. For example, if set to 'myebsprefix', the snapshots will be named 'myebsprefix-timestamp'. Unlike the DB_LINEAGE_NAME, it is only a backup of the EBS volume and not of an EBS volume with a MySQL database installed on it. For a restoration, the most recently completed backups will be used. Ex: myebsprefix
If defined, it will override the input defined for EBS_LINEAGE. For example, if you've cloned and created a staging deployment, you'll need to isolate the deployments from each other by using different EBS_LINEAGE names. But, you'll probably want to use a recent snapshot of the production deployment to set up your staging deployment. This input allows you to restore from a different snapshot however, the subsequent backups will use EBS_LINEAGE to name the snapshots. Be sure to remove this input once the new master is operational. Ex: otherebsprefix
Defines the filesystem path where you're going to detach a currently mounted EBS volume. Ex: /mnt/ebs
The total number of EBS volumes in the EBS stripe that will be used by the database. EBS volumes will be created and mounted to the instance. By default, a value of '1' will be used, which means only a single volume will be used (no striping). Only the predefined options have been tested.
Prevents the accidental running of the "EBS TERMINATE SERVER" script. If this input variable is set to anything other than "off" this script will not run
Defines the total size of the striped EBS volume set (in GB). For example, a stripe count of '3' will create an EBS stripe that contains 3 EBS volumes that are each 1GB in size. If an uneven ratio is defined, volume sizes will be rounded up to the nearest whole integer.
A space-separated list of additional processes to monitor in the RightScale Dashboard. Ex: sshd crond
A space-separated list of pairs used to match the name(s) of additional processes to monitor in the RightScale Dashboard. Pair arguments are passed in using the syntax 'name/regex'. Ex: ssh/ssh* cron/cron*
If you are using OPT_DB_RESTORE_LINEAGE_OVERRIDE input in order to restore a specific snapshot, you must also specify the desired timestamp. If the timestamp override is undefined, the latest database backup in the lineage will be used. Ex: 200912141627
A value of 'env:RS_INSTANCE_UUID' is required for proper RightScale monitoring and logging.
The hostname of the syslog server where log files will be sent. This input should be set to 'env:RS_SYSLOG' so that you can view your log files in the Dashboard.
Sets the system time to the timezone of the specified input, which must be a valid zoneinfo/tz database entry. If the input is 'unset' the timezone will use the 'localtime' that's defined in your RightScale account under Settings -> User -> Preferences tab. You can find a list of valid examples from the timezone pulldown bar in the Preferences tab. Ex: US/Pacific, US/Eastern
