GlusterFS - Clustered Filesystem.


glusterfsd [options] [mountpoint]


GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggre‐ gates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86-64 server with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA. GlusterFS is fully POSIX compliant FileSystem. On client side, it has dependency on FUSE package, on server side, it works seemlessly on different OSes. (Currently supported on GNU/Linux, Solaris).


Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or optional for any corresponding short options. Basic options -f, --volfile=VOLUME-FILE File to use as VOLUME-FILE [default:/etc/glusterfs/glusterfs.vol] -l, --log-file=LOGFILE File to use for logging [default:/var/log/glusterfs/glusterfs.log] -L, --log-level=LOGLEVEL Logging severity. Valid options are TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR and CRITI‐ CAL [default: WARNING] -s, --volfile-server=SERVER Server to get the volume from. This option overrides --volfile option Advanced options -L, --localtime-logging=on|off Enable or disable localtime log timestamps. Valid options are on and off (the default is off). --debug Run in debug mode. This option sets --no-daemon, --log-level to DEBUG and --log-file to console -N, --no-daemon Run in foreground --read-only Makes the filesystem read-only -p, --pid-file=PIDFILE File to use as pid file -S SOCKFILE Socket file to used for inter-process communication --brick-name DIRECTORY Directory to be used as export directory for GlusterFS --brick-port PORT Brick Port to be registered with Gluster portmapper --volfile-id=KEY KEY of the volume file to be fetched from server --volfile-server-port=PORT Port number of volfile server --volfile-server-transport=TRANSPORT Transport type to get volume file from server [default: tcp] --volume-name=VOLUME-NAME Volume name to be used for MOUNT-POINT [default: top most volume in VOLUME-FILE] --xlator-option=VOLUME-NAME.OPTION=VALUE Add/override a translator option for a volume with the specified value Fuse options --attribute-timeout=SECONDS Set attribute timeout to SECONDS for inodes in fuse kernel module [default: 1] --entry-timeout=SECONDS Set entry timeout to SECONDS in fuse kernel module [default: 1] --direct-io-mode=BOOL Enable/Disable direct-io mode in fuse module [default: enable] --resolve-gids Resolve all auxiliary groups in fuse translator (max 32 otherwise) Miscellaneous Options -?, --help Give this help list --usage Give a short usage message -V, --version Print program version
