On swift proxy servers there are three groups of services: account, container and object.

Each of these groups is comprised of a number of services, for instance: server, auditor, replicator etc

Each service has its own init script but all the services in a group are configured to use the same group config file eg swift-account, swift-account-auditor, swift-account-reaper & swift-account-replicator all use /etc/swift/account-server.conf.

Obviously this causes a problem when different services need different config. In the case of a swift cluster performing global replication the replication server need "
replication_server = true" where as the auditor needs "replication_server = false"
