       journal-upload.conf, journal-upload.conf.d - Configuration files
       for the journal upload service

SYNOPSIS         top





DESCRIPTION         top

       These files configure various parameters of
       systemd-journal-upload.service(8). See systemd.syntax(7) for a
       general description of the syntax.


       The default configuration is set during compilation, so
       configuration is only needed when it is necessary to deviate from
       those defaults. The main configuration file is either in
       /usr/lib/systemd/ or /etc/systemd/ and contains commented out
       entries showing the defaults as a guide to the administrator.
       Local overrides can be created by creating drop-ins, as described
       below. The main configuration file can also be edited for this
       purpose (or a copy in /etc/ if it's shipped in /usr/) however
       using drop-ins for local configuration is recommended over
       modifications to the main configuration file.

       In addition to the "main" configuration file, drop-in
       configuration snippets are read from /usr/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/,
       /usr/local/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/, and /etc/systemd/*.conf.d/.
       Those drop-ins have higher precedence and override the main
       configuration file. Files in the *.conf.d/ configuration
       subdirectories are sorted by their filename in lexicographic
       order, regardless of in which of the subdirectories they reside.
       When multiple files specify the same option, for options which
       accept just a single value, the entry in the file sorted last
       takes precedence, and for options which accept a list of values,
       entries are collected as they occur in the sorted files.

       When packages need to customize the configuration, they can
       install drop-ins under /usr/. Files in /etc/ are reserved for the
       local administrator, who may use this logic to override the
       configuration files installed by vendor packages. Drop-ins have
       to be used to override package drop-ins, since the main
       configuration file has lower precedence. It is recommended to
       prefix all filenames in those subdirectories with a two-digit
       number and a dash, to simplify the ordering of the files. This
       also defined a concept of drop-in priority to allow distributions
       to ship drop-ins within a specific range lower than the range
       used by users. This should lower the risk of package drop-ins
       overriding accidentally drop-ins defined by users.

       To disable a configuration file supplied by the vendor, the
       recommended way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in the
       configuration directory in /etc/, with the same filename as the
       vendor configuration file.

OPTIONS         top

       All options are configured in the [Upload] section:

           The URL to upload the journal entries to. See the description
           of --url= option in systemd-journal-upload(8) for the
           description of possible values. There is no default value, so
           either this option or the command-line option must be always
           present to make an upload.

           Added in version 232.

           SSL key in PEM format.

           Added in version 232.

           SSL CA certificate in PEM format.

           Added in version 232.

           SSL CA certificate.

           Added in version 232.

           When network connectivity to the server is lost, this option
           configures the time to wait for the connectivity to get
           restored. If the server is not reachable over the network for
           the configured time, systemd-journal-upload exits. Takes a
           value in seconds (or in other time units if suffixed with
           "ms", "min", "h", etc). For details, see systemd.time(5).

           Added in version 249.
