from workers. Ignored if worker-mode is not set. By default this is unused and
traffic is not authenticated.
background-tasks-worker
The worker that is used to run background tasks (e.g. cleaning up expired
data). If not provided this defaults to the main process.
outbound-federation-worker
Worker to be used for sending federation requests. Can be specified multiple
times. Disables sending outbound federation requests from the master process.
registration-shared-secret
If set, allows registration of standard or admin accounts by anyone who
has the shared secret, even if registration is otherwise disabled.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS
------------------
enable-registrations
Enables user registration on the homeserver.
enable-ldap-auth
Enables ldap-backed authentication.
ldap-use-starttls
Use STARTTLS when connection to the LDAP server.
report-stats
Whether or not to report anonymized homeserver usage statistics.
expose-metrics
Expose metrics endpoint for Prometheus.
enable-notifications
Enable mail notifications (see smtp-* optinal parameters).
smtp-use-starttls
Use STARTTLS when connection to the SMTP server.
disable-federation
Disable federation to the broader matrix network.
registration-require-email
Make email a required field on registration.
allow-public-rooms-over-federation
Allow other homeservers to fetch this server's public room directory.
allow-public-rooms-without-auth
If set to 'false', requires authentication to access the server's public rooms directory through the client API.
enable-server-notices
Enable the server notices room.
enable-3pid-lookups
Enable 3PIDs lookup requests to identity servers from this server.
allow-guest-access
Allows users to register as guests without a password/email/etc, and
participate in rooms hosted on this server which have been made accessible
to anonymous users.
limit-remote-room-complexity
When this is enabled, the room "complexity" will be checked before a user joins
a new remote room. If it is above the complexity limit (see
remote-room-complexity-threshold parameter), the server will disallow
joining, or will instantly leave.
disable-presence
Disable presence tracking on this homeserver.
user-directory-search-all-users
Defines whether to search all users visible to your HS when searching the
user directory, rather than limiting to users visible in public rooms.
If you set it True, you'll have to rebuild the user_directory search indexes,
see
`<https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/master/docs/user_directory.md>`_.
enable-message-retention-policy
If this feature is enabled, Synapse will regularly look for and purge events
which are older than the room's maximum retention period. Synapse will also
filter events received over federation so that events that should have been
purged are ignored and not stored again. See message-max-lifetime flag.
worker-mode
For small instances it recommended to run Synapse in the default monolith
mode. For larger instances where performance is a concern it can be helpful
to split out functionality into multiple separate python processes. These
processes are called 'workers'. Please read the WORKER MODE section of this
manpage before enabling, as extra work and considerations are required.
PERFORMANCE
-----------
The Synapse server is not very performant (initial implementation, pretty
resource hungry, etc.) and will eventually be replaced by Dendrite. The
following parameters (see above descriptions) will help you with performance
tuning:
* global-cache-factor
* event-cache-size
* disable-presence
* limit-remote-room-complexity and remote-room-complexity-threshold
WORKER MODE
-----------
Worker mode allows to move some processing out of the main synapse process for
horizontal scaling. You are expected to use the
`cdist-type__matrix_synapse_worker(7)
<cdist-type__matrix_synapse_worker.html>`_ type to set up workers when the
worker-mode flag is set.
Worker mode depend on the following components:
* A working `redis <https://redis.io/>`_ server
* The hiredis python package (`python3-hiredis
<https://packages.debian.org/buster/python3-hiredis>`_ on debian, not
packaged in alpine as of 2021-02-17).
* The txredisapi python package, which is not packaged on debian nor alpine
as of 2021-02-17.
The current way to install the above two python packages (if not packaged in
your distribution) is sadly to use pip (see `cdist-type__python_pip(7)
<cdist-type__python_pip.html>`_ core cdist type).
It is also recommended to first take a look at:
- `upstream's high-level overview on workers (matrix.org blog post) <https://matrix.org/blog/2020/11/03/how-we-fixed-synapses-scalability>`_
- `upstream's documentation on workers <https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/develop/docs/workers.md>`_
EXAMPLES
--------
.. code-block:: sh
__matrix_synapse --server-name ungleich.ch \
--base-url https://matrix.ungleich.ch \
--database-engine sqlite3 \
--database-name /var/lib/matrix-syanpse/homeserver.db
