Learn how to configure your MinIO server (2022)

Configuration Directory

MinIO stores all its config as part of the server deployment, config is erasure coded on MinIO. On a fresh deployment MinIO automatically generates a new config and this config is available to be configured via mc admin config command. MinIO also encrypts all the config, IAM and policies content if KMS is configured. Please refer to how to encrypt your config and IAM credentials here.

Certificate Directory

TLS certificates by default are expected to be stored under ${HOME}/.minio/certs directory. You need to place certificates here to enable HTTPS based access. Read more about How to secure access to MinIO server with TLS.

Following is a sample directory structure for MinIO server with TLS certificates.

$ mc tree --files ~/.minio/home/user1/.minio└─ certs ├─ CAs ├─ private.key └─ public.crt

You can provide a custom certs directory using --certs-dir command line option.

Credentials

On MinIO admin credentials or root credentials are only allowed to be changed using ENVs namely MINIO_ROOT_USER and MINIO_ROOT_PASSWORD.

export MINIO_ROOT_USER=minioexport MINIO_ROOT_PASSWORD=minio13minio server /data

Site

KEY:site label the server and its locationARGS:name (string) name for the site e.g. "cal-rack0"region (string) name of the location of the server e.g. "us-west-1"comment (sentence) optionally add a comment to this setting

Example:

export MINIO_SITE_REGION="us-west-0"export MINIO_SITE_NAME="sfo-rack-1"minio server /data

Storage Class

By default, parity for objects with standard storage class is set to N/2, and parity for objects with reduced redundancy storage class objects is set to 2. Read more about storage class support in MinIO server here.

Etcd

MinIO supports storing encrypted IAM assets in etcd, if KMS is configured. Please refer to how to encrypt your config and IAM credentials here.

NOTE: if path_prefix is set then MinIO will not federate your buckets, namespaced IAM assets are assumed as isolated tenants, only buckets are considered globally unique but performing a lookup with a bucket which belongs to a different tenant will fail unlike federated setups where MinIO would port-forward and route the request to relevant cluster accordingly. This is a special feature, federated deployments should not need to set path_prefix.

API

By default, there is no limitation on the number of concurrent requests that a server/cluster processes at the same time. However, it is possible to impose such limitation using the API subsystem. Read more about throttling limitation in MinIO server here.

Accessing configuration

All configuration changes can be made using mc admin config get/set/reset/export/import commands.

List all config keys available

~ mc admin config set myminio/

Obtain help for each key

~ mc admin config set myminio/ <key>

e.g: mc admin config set myminio/ etcd returns available etcd config args

~ mc admin config set play/ etcdKEY:etcd federate multiple clusters for IAM and Bucket DNSARGS:endpoints* (csv) comma separated list of etcd endpoints e.g. "http://localhost:2379"path_prefix (path) namespace prefix to isolate tenants e.g. "customer1/"coredns_path (path) shared bucket DNS records, default is "/skydns"client_cert (path) client cert for mTLS authenticationclient_cert_key (path) client cert key for mTLS authenticationcomment (sentence) optionally add a comment to this setting

To get ENV equivalent for each config args use --env flag

~ mc admin config set play/ etcd --envKEY:etcd federate multiple clusters for IAM and Bucket DNSARGS:MINIO_ETCD_ENDPOINTS* (csv) comma separated list of etcd endpoints e.g. "http://localhost:2379"MINIO_ETCD_PATH_PREFIX (path) namespace prefix to isolate tenants e.g. "customer1/"MINIO_ETCD_COREDNS_PATH (path) shared bucket DNS records, default is "/skydns"MINIO_ETCD_CLIENT_CERT (path) client cert for mTLS authenticationMINIO_ETCD_CLIENT_CERT_KEY (path) client cert key for mTLS authenticationMINIO_ETCD_COMMENT (sentence) optionally add a comment to this setting

This behavior is consistent across all keys; each key self-documents itself with valid examples.

Dynamic systems without restarting server

The following sub-systems are dynamic i.e., configuration parameters for each sub-systems can be changed while the server is running without any restarts.

(Video) This is MinIO

api manage global HTTP API call specific features, such as throttling, authentication types, etc.heal manage object healing frequency and bitrot verification checksscanner manage namespace scanning for usage calculation, lifecycle, healing and more

NOTE: if you set any of the following sub-system configuration using ENVs, dynamic behavior is not supported.

Usage scanner

Data usage scanner is enabled by default. The following configuration settings allow for more staggered delay in terms of usage calculation. The scanner adapts to the system speed and completely pauses when the system is under load. It is possible to adjust the speed of the scanner and thereby the latency of updates being reflected. The delays between each operation of the scanner can be adjusted by the mc admin config set alias/ delay=15.0. By default the value is 10.0. This means the scanner will sleep 10x the time each operation takes.

In most setups this will keep the scanner slow enough to not impact overall system performance. Setting the delay key to a lower value will make the scanner faster and setting it to 0 will make the scanner run at full speed (not recommended in production). Setting it to a higher value will make the scanner slower, consuming less resources with the trade off of not collecting metrics for operations like healing and disk usage as fast.

~ mc admin config set alias/ scannerKEY:scanner manage namespace scanning for usage calculation, lifecycle, healing and moreARGS:delay (float) scanner delay multiplier, defaults to '10.0'max_wait (duration) maximum wait time between operations, defaults to '15s'

Example: the following setting will decrease the scanner speed by a factor of 3, reducing the system resource use, but increasing the latency of updates being reflected.

~ mc admin config set alias/ scanner delay=30.0

Once set the scanner settings are automatically applied without the need for server restarts.

NOTE: Data usage scanner is not supported under Gateway deployments.

Healing

Healing is enabled by default. The following configuration settings allow for more staggered delay in terms of healing. The healing system by default adapts to the system speed and pauses up to '1sec' per object when the system has max_io number of concurrent requests. It is possible to adjust the max_sleep and max_io values thereby increasing the healing speed. The delays between each operation of the healer can be adjusted by the mc admin config set alias/ heal max_sleep=1s and maximum concurrent requests allowed before we start slowing things down can be configured with mc admin config set alias/ heal max_io=30 . By default the wait delay is 1sec beyond 10 concurrent operations. This means the healer will sleep 1 second at max for each heal operation if there are more than 10 concurrent client requests.

(Video) Installing the MinIO server in less than 2 Minutes #objectstorage #multicloud #kubernetes #k8s

In most setups this is sufficient to heal the content after drive replacements. Setting max_sleep to a lower value and setting max_io to a higher value would make heal go faster.

~ mc admin config set alias/ healKEY:heal manage object healing frequency and bitrot verification checksARGS:bitrotscan (on|off) perform bitrot scan on disks when checking objects during scannermax_sleep (duration) maximum sleep duration between objects to slow down heal operation. eg. 2smax_io (int) maximum IO requests allowed between objects to slow down heal operation. eg. 3

Example: The following settings will increase the heal operation speed by allowing healing operation to run without delay up to 100 concurrent requests, and the maximum delay between each heal operation is set to 300ms.

~ mc admin config set alias/ heal max_sleep=300ms max_io=100

Once set the healer settings are automatically applied without the need for server restarts.

NOTE: Healing is not supported for Gateway deployments.

Environment only settings (not in config)

Browser

Enable or disable access to console web UI. By default it is set to on. You may override this field with MINIO_BROWSER environment variable.

Example:

export MINIO_BROWSER=offminio server /data

Domain

By default, MinIO supports path-style requests that are of the format http://mydomain.com/bucket/object. MINIO_DOMAIN environment variable is used to enable virtual-host-style requests. If the request Host header matches with (.+).mydomain.com then the matched pattern $1 is used as bucket and the path is used as object. Read more about path-style and virtual-host-style here.

This guide explains how to configure MinIO Server with TLS certificates on Linux and Windows platforms.

This guide explains how to configure MinIO Server with TLS certificates on Linux and Windows platforms.. Inside the certs directory, the private key must by named private.key and the public key must be named public.crt .. MinIO only supports keys and certificates in PEM format on Linux and Windows.. The default OpenSSL format for private encrypted keys is PKCS-8, but MinIO only supports PKCS-1.. This section describes how to use GnuTLS on Windows to generate a certificate.. 3.3.2 Generate a private key Run the following command to generate a private .key file:. This file contains all of the information necessary to generate a certificate using certtool.exe :. Run certtool.exe and specify the configuration file to generate a certificate:

MinIO is an open-source object storage server compatible with the Amazon S3 cloud storage service. The service stores unstructured data such as photos, video…

That command sets up a minio command and a systemd startup script, and both can be used to start the MinIO server.. If you want to point a domain name to the server and wish to reference the MinIO server by that domain name and the IP address, generate a certificate for the MinIO server using the following command:. Also, starting the MinIO server with the minio command will automatically create .minio folder under /root , which will not work with systemd.. MinIO does not always log to the systemd journal, so if sudo journalctl -u minio does not show an up-to-date activity when troubleshooting MinIO, use the sudo grep minio /var/log/syslog command instead.. The MinIO client is the component of MinIO you install on your local computer and use to manage the MinIO server.. To add an entry for your MinIO server in the configuration file with mcli , use the following command with the credentials that you set up for the server in Step 2:. Tip: When using the MinIO client to connect to the MinIO server, always call the mcli command with the --insecure flag.. You also connected to the MinIO server using the MinIO Console and connected to the MinIO server through the MinIO client you installed on your personal computer.

Learn how to secure data in transit, data at-rest and establish role-based access control policies in the first of a series of blog posts about securing MinIO.

Once you have restarted your MinIO cluster, all data transferred to MinIO will be sent over encrypted connections.. In addition to encrypting data ingress, MinIO may need to talk to other services, like an audit log service, securely.. Such CA certificates should be placed into the certs/CAs/ directory.. Once we have secured data ingress, we can take a look at securing data at rest.. Now, we can upload objects that get encrypted at rest.. Any data that gets placed into this bucket will be encrypted with the key my-first-key at the KMS.. At this point, alice will be able to read any object on our MinIO cluster but she will not be able to create or delete objects.. From here, we could create new user accounts for all our applications and tune their policy permissions.. By default, the service account inherits the policy permissions of the user.. For example, alice may run several applications that want to fetch data from our MinIO cluster.. Instead of configuring these applications with her own S3 credentials, she should generate/request a new service account for each of her applications.. To summarize: MinIO controls data access by applying policies associated to users, groups or service accounts.. Conceptually, we have to secure the data ingress, the data at rest and define data access rules.

Create a multi-user MinIO server as a private S3 compatible object host

You can host your MinIO server on any host that you have administrator access to, such as instances on Civo.. You will have the option to create a user per server, one user to all servers, or a user per project such as Django to upload all your media and static assets.. To prepare for installing MinIO server, first of all we want to create a directory to store all data created by users.. Note: If you want to bind to a port < 1024 with the service running as a regular user, you will need to add bind capability via the AmbientCapabilities directive in the minio.service file:. We are going to add a new host, our instance, to the MinIO mc running on that instance.. So far so good, now we'll configure the client with this new user, which is the same as we’ve done so far in "Install" and "Configure the MinIO mc Client", but on a new server such as on your local machine.

Minio is a self-hosted object storage system that’s compatible with the Amazon S3 API interfaces. In this guide, we’ll use Minio to set up shared caching for GitLab Runner as an alternative to a cloud-hosted object storage solution.

In this guide, we’ll use Minio to set up shared caching for GitLab Runner as an alternative to a cloud-hosted object storage solution.. Although the cache restoration is intended to be on a “best effort” basis, meaning your jobs shouldn’t require a cache include content from an earlier job, in practice many people do use the cache field to pass data between their jobs.. Self-hosting a Minio installation alongside your GitLab instance lets you benefit from more reliable cache restoration that still works predictably with parallel jobs.. Here’s how to install Minio and configure GitLab Runner to use it for caching.. AccessKey and SecretKey – These should match the credentials for the Minio user account you created in the Minio Console.. Your CI jobs should now pull and push caches defined in your .gitlab-ci.yml up to your Minio server.. Minio is easily configured as a basic installation that works as a shared cache for GitLab Runner.. It adds additional overheads to the pipeline process as GitLab Runner needs to compress your job’s cache and upload it to Minio before recording a successful result.

Install and configure Loki, Promtail, Grafana and MinIO to quickly get started working with log data.
