Database Configurations

General Syntax

This collection of commands configures settings related to the MySQL database that stores transfer data (for use with Aspera Console before version 3.0).

The syntax for setting database parameters is the following:

> asconfigurator -x "set_database_data;parameter,value"

Database Configurations

server
The IP address of the database server (or the IP address of the Aspera Console server).
Values: (IP address, default 127.0.0.1)
port
The port that the database server listens on. The default value for an Aspera Console installation is 4406.
Values: (Number 1-65535, default 4406)
user
The user login for the database server.
Values: (String)
password
The password for the database server.
Values: (String)
database_name
The name of the database used to store Aspera transfer data.
Values: (String)
threads
The number of parallel connections used for database logging.
Values: (Number, default 1)
exit_on_database_error
Whether all transfers are stopped on a database error (true) or not (false).
Values: false (default), true
session_progress
Whether transfer status should be logged at a given interval (true) or not (false). Transfer status includes number of files transferred, bytes transferred, among other stats.
Values: true (default), false
session_progress_interval
The frequency at which an Aspera node logs transfer session data, in seconds.
Values: (Number 1-65535, default 1)
file_events
Whether complete file paths and file names should be logged (true) or not (false). Performance may be impacted when setting this to true for transfers of thousands of files.
Values: true (default), false
file_progress
Whether file status, such as bytes transferred, should be logged (true) or not (false).
Values: true (default), false
file_progress_interval
The frequency with which an Aspera node logs file transfer data, in seconds.
Values: (Number 1-65535, default 1)
files_per_session
The number of file names to be recorded for any transfer session. For example, if the value is set to 50 the first 50 filenames will be recorded for any session. A setting of 0 logs all filenames. The session will still record the number of files transferred, and the number of files completed, failed or skipped.
Values: (Number, default 0)
file_progress_interval
The frequency at which an Aspera node logs file transfer data, in seconds.
Values: (Number 1-65535, default 1)
ignore_empty_files
Whether to block the logging of zero byte files (true) or not (false).
Values: false (default), true
ignore_skipped_files
Whether to block the logging of skipped files (true) or not (false).
Values: false (default), true
ignore_no_transfer_files
Whether to block the logging of files that were not transferred because they already exist at the destination (true) or not (false).
Values: false (default), true
