Here's a list of candidate parameters in gtm.conf and long option for GTM, GTM-Standby and GTM-Proxy.

err_wait_interval How long to wait (in sec)NoNoYes
err_wait_count How many times to waitNoNoYes
keepalives_idle See tcp_keepalive_timeYesYesYes
keepalives_interval See tcp_keepalive_intvlYesYesYes
keepalives_count See tcp_keepalive_probesYesYesyes

Further description is as follows:

  • GTM may be allowed to have destination_host and desitnation_port to specify connection point used at the time of switchover.
  • I'm not sure if initial_gxid should appear in gtm.conf because this is needed only at the the first time or when GTM restarts after crash, where restart GXID value is not reliable. I'm thinking to leave this in the command option.
  • err_reporter and status_reader is an external command to report any error or to obtain global XC cluster status respectively. It is supposed that they are a part of XCM module. Because they are not called frequently, it would be better not to include XCM libaries in GTM.
  • err_wait_opt, err_wait_interval and err_wait_count control the behavior of GTM-Proxy when it detects errors in send/receive data with GTM. This is needed to wait for "reconnect" operation when GTM fails.
