about vm_test_mode parameter in account and object replicators

Asked by Fatih Güçlü Akkaya on 2012-10-22

Hi all,

It will be a short question. What is the impact on a storage node in a VM environment if i leave vm_test_mode to its default value as 'no'? Does it affect performance of Storage replication process or is it just a flag for other purposes like logging or statistics?

Thanks

vm_test_mode is a feature to let you run a Swift "cluster" on a single box for testing purposes. See the Swift-All-In-One documentation for an example that uses it.

If you're running a real cluster, leave it off.

Thanks Samuel Merritt, that solved my question.
