       venti.conf  - a venti configuration file

       A  venti	 configuration	file enumerates the various index sections and
       arenas that constitute a venti system.  The components are indicated by
       the name of the file, typically a disk partition, in which they reside.
       The configuration file is the only location that file names  are	 used.
       Internally, venti uses the names assigned when the components were for‐
       matted with fmtarenas or fmtisect (see venti-fmt(8)).   In  particular,
       by  changing the configuration a component can be copied to a different

       The configuration file consists of lines in the form  described	below.
       Lines starting with # are comments.

       index name
	      Names the index for the system.

       arenas file
	      File contains a collection of arenas, formatted using fmtarenas.

       isect file
	      File contains an index section, formatted using fmtisect.

       After formatting a venti system using fmtindex, the order of arenas and
       index sections  should  not  be	changed.   Additional  arenas  can  be
       appended to the configuration.

       The  configuration  file	 optionally holds configuration parameters for
       the venti server itself.	 These are:

       mem cachesize

       bcmem blockcachesize

       icmem indexcachesize

       addr ventiaddress

       httpaddr httpaddress

	      See venti(8) for descriptions of these variables.
