Some short questions concerning PROOF configuration

Hi everybody,

I have some short questions concerning the various configuration files located in the …/root/proof/etc directory. Unfortunately I was not able to find documentation describing their functions.

The only file I’m using at the moment is “proof.conf” where I defined my PROOF cluster configuration. But I have no idea what pupose the file “cluster.conf” serves. The documentation of the class TProof states that it can be used to define different cluster setups and switch to the one needed.

What are the files “motd” and “noproof” useful for.

Maybe someone could point me to the documentation or give are short comment on the purpose of these files?

Regards,

Jan Erik.

Hello,

Thanks for pointing that out :blush: , we will add a description to the README file.

This is the only file that is required!

That is an non essential file, used by the utilities in the proof/utils directory.
It is unrelated to the PROOF configuration file.

The first on, “motd” short for “message of the day” will be shown to the
user when he connects to the PROOF cluster. The second one disables
access to the PROOF cluster. This is used to temporarily stop logins
during sysadmin activities.
These files are identical in function to the standard unix “/etc/motd” and “/etc/nologin”
