Using Additional Boot Properties

The sqlf server command uses command-line arguments to configure most boot properties for SQLFire servers. You can specify a number of additional SQLFire properties to configure different aspects of the distributed system.

You pass additional properties to the script as "-key=value" pairs on the command line, where the key corresponds to a valid SQLFire property. Or, you can define parameter values in a properties file that the sqlf server command reads at runtime. By default, the server reads input configuration properties from a file named sqlfire.properties in the working directory. You can specify a different configuration file by using the sqlfire.properties property at boot time.

You can use supported configuration properties either with the sqlf server command or the FabricServer interface in Java applications. You can also specify the properties as JDBC connection properties when you start a peer client using the JDBC peer driver as described in Developing Java Clients and Peers.

Configuration Properties describes all available configuration properties.
