The only way we found to configure a server was via specifying command-line arguments (i.e. no configuration files). This is not a particularly easy mechanism in my opinion, and will inevitably lead to people coming up with custom config file structures that they parse with a bash script to populate the arguments for CockroachDB (I ended up doing something similar). It’s particularly painful if you want to specify arguments like this:
--store=path=/mnt/hda1,size=20GB,attrs=hdd:7200rpm. Are there any plans to do file-based server configuration?
