"mwg" file in the file editor's tab

Hi,

Does Anyone knows the funtion of the file "mwg" in the FIle Editor tab. And how about the other files, ex. sockd.conf, sysctl.conf and etc. Only hosts/rsyslogd/sshd_config could be found in the doc.

Re: "mwg" file in the file editor's tab

Hi,

Hope you are doing well.

Regarding  sysctl.conf  file you can refer below links:-

http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man5/sysctl.conf.5.html

https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-kernel-etcsysctl-conf-security-hardening/

 

resolv.conf is the name of a computer file used in various operating systems to configure the system's Domain Name System (DNS) resolver the resolv.conf configuration file contains information that determines the operational parameters of the DNS resolver. The DNS resolver allows applications running in the operating system to translate human-friendly domain names into the numeric IP addresses that are required for access to resources on the local area network or the Internet

 

The file resolv.conf typically contains directives that specify the default search domains; used for completing a given query name to a fully qualified domain name when no domain suffix is supplied. It also contains a list of IP addresses of nameservers available for resolution. An example file is:

search example.com local.lan
nameserver 1.1.1.1
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 9.9.9.9


/etc/resolv.conf file is  used to configure dns name servers.

 

Quagga is used for deploying dynamic routing protocol. Quagga requires two daemons to work. First is zebra, which is responsible for talking to the kernel routing table. Second is a protocol specific daemon, that does the network communication and talks to zebra for querying and updating the kernel routing table

Re: "mwg" file in the file editor's tab

Hi,

mwg file present under file editor tab is for configuring/making changes to variables related to MWG. You can already check some examples already present inside it from the GUI.

 

Below is one more example for the same:-

 

in some cases your rule traces just show the last executed rule is the composite opener as well as displaying an exclamation mark where you expect to see more rule to be applied?

 

In this case you run into implemented limit for rule traces files. If you need to know where in your setup you run into a block, if the rule name is not added into block page, you can raise the limit.

 

Limit can be extended using a variable "MWG_RE_TRACE_MAX_ELEMS",by default the value is set to "100000".


Add the below entry from UI (UI->Configuration->File Editor->mwg or in /etc/sysconfig/mwg )
and restart the MWG services.

MWG_RE_TRACE_MAX_ELEMS=1000000
export MWG_RE_TRACE_MAX_ELEMS

The max. value you can set for the MWG_RE_TRACE_MAX_ELEMS is limited by the size of 32 bit unsigned integer . i.e it can set to any value less than 4294967295.


Currently, there is no way to disable this limit completely.

Use this change carefully, depends on the configured limit you will also have to raise the UI memory under “Configuration – User Interface – Memory Settings”.


In worst case, depends on the available memory on your device and the size of your requested file/object, it can lead to running out of memory into a termsignal crash.

Hi Aloksard,

Thanks the reply. I am more interesting about the mwg configuration.
Can we get the doc of it?
