The Pica8 PICOS software keeps its configuration in the picos_start.conf file located in the /etc/picos directory.

admin@LEAF-A$ls /etc/picos/picos*
/etc/picos/picos_start.conf

User can use the more command at the Linux shell to display contents of the picos_start.conf file.

The picos_start.conf configuration file has the following four sections, each section having one or more variables:

  1. PICOS
  2. XORPLUS
  3. OVS
  4. ZTP

The following table describes the variables in picos_start.conf - the PicOS configuration file.

SectionVariableValueDescription
PICOSpicos_startxorplusPICOS operates in the L2/L3 mode after the picos service is restarted, or the system is rebooted.
ovsPICOS operates in the OVS mode after the picos service is restarted, or the system is rebooted.
 The device boots into Linux as usual, but both the PICOS modes are inactive.
