Status File Format


General

The status file is similar to a regular property file, with that difference that the keys can occur multiple times.
This is done for load balancing reasons.
If a key occurs multiple times, and you want to use that set of data, you MUST do load balancing between the different URLs.

Any line starting with ; or # should be regarded as comments and ignored by the client parser.
