NAME
       ipa_st_sdb -- IPA simple	database module	(statistics part)

DESCRIPTION
       ipa_st_sdb is an	IPA statistics module with the following features:

       -      The module reads data from the ipa_sdb(5)	database;

       -      The module completely supports rules, limits and thresholds.

       The name	of the statistics system is sdb.

CONFIGURATION FILE FORMAT
       Configuration  for  the	module	is integrated to the ipa.conf(5) file.
       The configuration prefix	of this	module is ``sdb''.

       The sdb:db_dir parameter	allows to define the main  database  directory
       (the default value is /var/ipa_sdb):

	   sdb:db_dir =	"/path/to/directory";

       This parameter can be placed in global or rule section.

       Static  and  dynamic  rules inherit this	parameter from the global sec-
       tion.  Since it can be placed in	the rule section, then	any  rule  can
       have own	main directory for its database	files and directories.

       Next parameters can be placed only in the sdb: module's section:

	   sdb:	{
	       /* Parameters. */
	   }

       By  default the module disallows	using of symlinks in the database.  To
       allow symlinks in the database  set  the	 allow_symlinks	 parameter  to
       ``yes'' (the default value is ``no''):

	   sdb:	{
	       allow_symlinks =	<boolean>;
	   }

       The  main  database directory has a special file	containing the version
       number of the database format and the module checks  version  saved  in
       this file.  To speedup the module startup in case if many main database
       directories are used it is possible to turn off database	format version
       checking	 in  the  check_version	parameter by setting it	to ``no'' (the
       default value is	``yes''):

	   sdb:	{
	       check_version = <boolean>;
	   }

       It is not recommended to	turn off database format version checking.

       By default the module is	very quiet and does not	send any log  messages
       until  any  error  occurs.  To see all messages from the	module set the
       quiet parameter to ``no'' (the default value is ``yes''):

	   sdb:	{
	       quiet = <boolean>;
	   }

       Example:

	   st_mod "ipa_st_sdb.so";

	   global {
	       /* ... */
	       st_list = sdb;
	       sdb:db_dir = "/var/db/ipa_sdb";
	   }

	   rule	1 {
	       /* ... */
	   }

	   rule	2 {
	       /* ... */
	       sdb:db_dir = "/home/my/ipa_sdb";
	   }

       First rule inherits value of the	sdb:db_dir parameter from  the	global
       section.	  Second  rule	has own	value for this parameter.  All dynamic
       rules will inherit the value  of	 the  sdb:db_dir  parameter  from  the
       global section.
