Agent Configuration Reference

< Guide Menu
Table of Contents

The settings in local.cfg are common to all types of agents (filesystem scanner, SQL scanner, etc).

Local.cfg is a JSON file, structured as a ‘dictionary’ at the top level. (I.e, the top level brackets are always {}). Sections inside the top dictionary are also dictionaries in turn. Typical settings for an agent are as follows:

{
    \"agent\" : {
        \"server\" : \"127.0.0.1\"
    },
  
   \"logging\" : {
        \"master_level\"  : \"DEBUG\",
        \"file_enable\"   : false,
        \"file_level\"    : \"DEBUG\",
        \"syslog_enable\" : false,
        \"syslog_addr\"   : \"/dev/log\",
        \"1_syslog_addr\" : \"localhost:514\",
        \"syslog_facility\"   : \"daemon\",
        \"syslog_severity\"   : \"debug\"
    },

    \"dirs\" : {
        \"log\" : \"\",
        \"tmp\" : \"\",
        \"data\" : \"\"
    }

}

Common Agent Settings

\”server\”

Setting address of the Quasar server.

This can be an IP address or a fully-qualified DNS name.

Logging Settings

\”master_level\”

Setting logging level of scanning process.

These track UNIX SYSLOG log levels – DEBUG, INFO, NOTE, WARN, ERROR, CRIT

NOTE: the syslog_ settings only apply to Linux agents.

Directory Settings

Default directory locations are displayed by the Quasar agent on startup – to console if in foreground mode, and/or to the Windows event log or Linux syslog if in service mode.

The dirs section can be used to override default directory locations if the need arises.
