Marid Configuration

Application Configuration

If you download stand-alone opsgenie-marid package, Marid application configuration file is located in:

  • For Windows: <MARID_HOME>/conf/marid.conf
  • For Linux: /etc/opsgenie/marid/marid.conf

If you are using marid, within an integration package(nagios, zabbix, zenoss etc.), Marid application configuration file is located in:

  • /etc/opsgenie/conf/opsgenie-integration.conf

Depending on what Marid will be used for, different configuration parameters need to be defined.

JVM Configuration

You can change JVM settings like max/min memory, garbage collection settings, etc. by modifying application configuration files depending on your operating system.

On Linux
You should modify MARID_JVM variable in /etc/opsgenie/profile file. For example to set max memory to 1024 MB you should change MARID_JVM as:

MARID_JVM=" -Xmx1024m $MARID_JVM"

On Windows

For 32-bit Windows

You should modify JVM settings in <MARID_JVM>/marid.vmoptions file. For example to set max memory to 1024 MB you should change -Xmx setting as

-Xmx1024m

For 64-bit Windows

You should modify JVM settings in <MARID_JVM>/marid_64.vmoptions file. For example to set max memory to 1024 MB you should change -Xmx setting as

-Xmx1024m

Log Configuration

Marid log configuration file is located in:

  • For Windows: <MARID_HOME>/conf/log.properties
  • For Linux: /etc/opsgenie/marid/log.properties

This is a standard Apache Log4J configuration file. You can change log levels, log file names, appender settings, etc. Please refer to Apache Log4J Manual for a complete list of Log4J settings.

For example in order to change log level of script logger to DEBUG from WARN you should change log4j.logger.script=WARN, script as log4j.logger.script=DEBUG, script
