failure

Reading aspera.conf configuration settings with asuserdata

You can view the current configuration settings by section and all the possible parameters with their default values and corresponding asconfigurator syntax by running asuserdata.

# /opt/aspera/bin/asuserdata [options] [commands]

The asuserdata command must be run either from within the Aspera bin directory, or with the full path in front of it.

Multiple command flags can be specified per call. The option flags modify the output of command flags that follow them (but not command flags that precede them).

-u user Outputs configurations set in the user section for the specified user.
-g group Outputs configurations set in the group section for the specified group.
-d Outputs configurations set in the database section.
-c Outputs configurations set in the central server section.
-t Outputs configurations set in the HTTP server section.
-a Outputs configurations set in all sections except the user and group section.
