About the pullcentralconfig Script

Provides a brief synopsis about the pullcentralconfig script.

The pullcentralconfig script runs on each node in the cluster. The pullcentralconfig script is launched automatically at specified intervals (the default interval is 300 seconds, which is five minutes). For each service listed in /opt/mapr/roles, the pullcentralconfig script searches for corresponding configuration files in the central configuration location, /var/mapr/configuration. If any configuration files are found, it compares the timestamp (mtimes) of the files in the central configuration location to the timestamp of the local version in /opt/mapr. If the central configuration version is newer, pullcentralconfig overwrites the local version with the central configuration file. To ensure that the newer version gets used, you need to restart the associated service.
