Ceph Object Gateway Config Reference

The following settings may added to the Ceph configuration file (i.e., usually ceph.conf) under the [client.radosgw.{instance-name}] section. The settings may contain default values. If you do not specify each setting in the Ceph configuration file, the default value will be set automatically.

Configuration variables set under the [client.radosgw.{instance-name}] section will not apply to rgw or radosgw-admin commands without an instance-name specified in the command. Thus variables meant to be applied to all RGW instances or all radosgw-admin commands can be put into the [global] or the [client] section to avoid specifying instance-name.
