DataStore Server

The Opsview Datastore is a persistent NoSQL database. As of current release the datastore uses version 2.2.0 of Apache couchdb.


It uses our version of Erlang - opsview-erlang.


Refer to Advanced Automated Installation.  


We ship the opsview-datastore with the configuration tuned for high-performance. Any configuration overrides should be placed in a .ini file in /opt/opsview/datastore/etc/local.d directory.



Watchdog service files are now managed by the package, doing a remove would leave the watchdog service file behind with a .save extension. Purging the package will remove it. The package managed config files are as follows:


Watchdog service files are now managed by the package. Any modifications will be saved at upgrade and remove time.

Opsview Datastore logs via syslog using local6 facility.

As root, start, stop and restart the service using:

/opt/opsview/watchdog/bin/opsview-monit <start|stop|restart> opsview-datastore
