Full Description


The passivator process purpose is watching last access services dates submitted by Gogeta and starting/stopping those services depending on limit access duration (If no activity has been detected during 12 hours, service is passivated). The process will restart after first new activity detected.

It is part of the infrastructure.

How it works

The passivator is:

  • watching etcd services entries to re-activate service when a user is trying to access it
  • executing a cron process to check every 5 minutes if some services need to be passivated after 12 hours without activity


Several parameters allow to configure the way the passivator behaves :

  • serviceDir allows to select the prefix of the key where it watches for services (default value: "/services" )
  • etcdAddress specifies the address of the etcd server (default value: "")
  • cronDuration specifies the lap duration in minutes to check services to passivate (default value: "5")
  • passiveLimitDuration specifies the limit duration in hours when a service has to be passivated if no activity has been detected (default value: "12")


     passivator -etcdAddress="" \
           -serviceDir="/services" \

If you need to display Info logs this flag can be added:
