1. Overview

   The modules is a Resource List Server implementation following the
   specification in RFC 4662 and RFC 4826.

   The server is independent from local presence servers, retrieving
   presence information with Subscribe-Notify messages.

   The module uses the presence module as a library, as it requires a
   resembling mechanism for handling Subscribe. Therefore, in case the
   local presence server is not collocated on the same machine with the RL
   server, the presence module should be loaded in a library mode only
   (see doc for presence module).

   It handles subscription to lists in an event independent way.The
   default event is presence, but if some other events are to be handled
   by the server, they should be added using the module parameter
   "rls_events".

   It works with XCAP server for storage. There is also the possibility to
   configure it to work in an integrated_xcap server mode, when it only
   queries database for the resource lists documents. This is useful in a
   small architecture when all the clients use an integrated server and
   there are no references to exterior documents in their lists.

   The same as presence module, it has a caching mode with periodical
   update in database for subscribe information. The information retrieved
   with Notify messages is stored in database only.

...
modparam("rls", "max_expires", 10800)
...

3.8. hash_size (int)

   The dimension of the hash table used to store subscription to a list.
   This parameter will be used as the power of 2 when computing table
   size.

   Default value is “9 (512)”.

   Example 1.8. Set hash_size parameter
...
modparam("rls", "hash_size", 11)
...

3.9. xcap_root (str)

   extracts the dialog info and sends aggregate Notify requests with
   information for the list.

   This function can be used from REQUEST_ROUTE.

   Example 1.15. rls_handle_subscribe usage

5. Installation

   The module requires 2 tables in Kamailio database: rls_presentity and
   rls_watchers.The SQL syntax to create them can be found in
   rls-create.sql script in the database directories in the
   kamailio/scripts folder. You can also find the complete database
   documentation on the project webpage,
   http://www.kamailio.org/docs/db-tables/kamailio-db-devel.html.

Chapter 2. Developer Guide

   The module provides no functions to be used in other Kamailio modules.
