The Mesos master and agent can take a variety of configuration options
through command-line arguments or environment variables. A list of the
available options can be seen by running
mesos-master --help or
mesos-agent --help. Each option can be set in two ways:
By passing it to the binary using
--option_name=value, either specifying the value directly, or specifying a file in which the value resides (
--option_name=file://path/to/file). The path can be absolute or relative to the current working directory.
By setting the environment variable
MESOS_OPTION_NAME(the option name with a
MESOS_prefix added to it).
Configuration values are searched for first in the environment, then on the command-line.
Additionally, this documentation lists only a recent snapshot of the options in
Mesos. A definitive source for which flags your version of Mesos supports can be
found by running the binary with the flag
--help, for example
These are options common to both the Mesos master and agent.
If you have special compilation requirements, please refer to
./configure --help when configuring Mesos.
