+Cluster Options
+===============
+
+.. config:section:: cluster :: cluster Options
+
+    .. config:option:: q
+
+    Sets the default number of shards for newly created databases. The
+    default value, ``8``, splits a database into 8 separate partitions. ::
+
+        [cluster]
+        q = 8
+
+    For systems with lots of small, infrequently accessed databases, or
+    for servers with fewer CPU cores, consider reducing this value to
+    ``1`` or ``2``.
+
+    The value of ``q`` can also be overridden on a per-DB basis, at DB
+    creation time.
+
+    .. seealso::
+        httpdomain:put:`PUT /{db} </{db}>`
+
+    .. config:option:: n
+
+    Sets the number of replicas of each document in a cluster. CouchDB will
+    only place one replica per node in a cluster. When set up through the
+    :ref:`Cluster Setup Wizard <cluster/setup/wizard>`, a standalone single
+    node will have ``n = 1``, a two node cluster will have ``n = 2``, and
+    any larger cluster will have ``n = 3``. It is recommended not to set
+    ``n`` greater than ``3``. ::
+
+        [cluster]
+        n = 3
+
+    .. config:option:: placement
+
+    Sets the cluster-wide replica placement policy when creating new
+    databases. The value must be a comma-delimited list of strings of the
+    format ``zone_name:#``, where ``zone_name`` is a zone as specified in
+    the ``nodes`` database and ``#`` is an integer indicating the number of
+    replicas to place on nodes with a matching ``zone_name``.
+
+    This parameter is not specified by default. ::
+
+        [cluster]
+        placement = metro-dc-a:2,metro-dc-b:1
+
+    .. seealso::
