Configuring SPARKL

SPARKL nodes can be configured by customising the auto-configuration or by manually editing the sys.config file. You can name and cluster the nodes, or secure your connection for the cloud.

As shown in Figure 1, if SPARKL finds a sys.config file in the directory you start SPARKL from, SPARKL uses this file to configure the node. Otherwise, the sys.config file is created automatically.

Important: If SPARKL finds a sys.config file in the directory before creating a node there, SPARKL does not generate the license file, the configuration database and the logs directory. Therefore, it is recommended to let SPARKL create the sys.config during auto-configuration, and edit this file later on, if necessary.
