Configuration files

The behaviour of MarcoPolo is defined almost in its entirety by a set of configuration files, stored in a single folder (/etc/marcopolo). The main files and folders are the following:

|── marco
|   |── marco.cfg
|── polo
    |── polo.cfg
    |── services
        |── deployer
        |── marcobootstrap
  • The marco.cfg and polo.cfg files determine the particular behaviour of each of the daemons. The listening ports, multicast groups and several other parameters are defined here.
  • The services folder stores the information about the static services provided by the machine. Each one is located in a file with no extension, and the information is encoded in JSON strings.

See Configuration for more details on the configuration of the services and examples.
