4.3 Configuration Options

Configuration file options and command-line options serve different purposes and are documented in separate locations.

When bootstrapping, the generated configuration file's settings depend on the bootstrap options passed into mysqlrouter. For example, passing in --conf-use-sockets enables socket connections by defining socket for each route in the generated configuration file. Or, --directory adds all generated files and subdirectories to a single directory and adjusts the generated configuration file values accordingly.
