NAME

nilfs_cleanerd.conf - nilfs_cleanerd(8) configuration file

DESCRIPTION

The nilfs_cleanerd.conf file is the configuration file for the nilfs_cleanerd(8) which reclaims disk space of the NILFS2 filesystem. This file specifies the parameters related to garbage collection (GC) and behaviour of the daemon program. The file contains keyword argument pairs or keyword-only directives, one per line. Lines starting with '#' are interpreted as comments. The comment lines and empty lines are ignored.

PARAMETERS

The possible keywords and their meanings are as follows (keywords and arguments are both case-sensitive): protection_period Specify the period during which each checkpoint is protected from the garbage col‐ lector (in seconds). NILFS2 GC never deletes checkpoints and their blocks whose duration time is less than the value. The default value is 3600, meaning one hour. min_clean_segments Specify the minimum number of clean segments. A value of 0 means continuous clean‐ ing. A value greater than 0 means pause cleaning until less than min_clean_segments are available. max_clean_segments Specify the maximum number of clean segments. If min_clean_segments is 0, this value is ignored. If more than max_clean_segments are available cleaning is paused until less than min_clean_segments are available. min_clean_segments and max_clean_segments may be followed by a percent sign or the follow‐ ing multiplicative suffixes: kB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, GB 1000*1000*1000, G 1024*1024*1024, and so on for T, P, E. If the argument is followed by a percent sign, it represents a disk capacity ratio. The default values of min_clean_segments and max_clean_segments are 10 percent and 20 per‐ cent respectively. clean_check_interval Specify the interval to wait between checks of min_clean_segments. If min_clean_segments is 0, this value is ignored. The default value is 10. selection_policy Specify the GC policy. At present, only the `timestamp' policy, which reclaims seg‐ ments in order from oldest to newest, is support. nsegments_per_clean Specify the number of segments reclaimed by a single cleaning step. The default value is 2. mc_nsegments_per_clean Specify the number of segments reclaimed by a single cleaning step if clean seg‐ ments < min_clean_segments. The default value is 4. cleaning_interval Specify the cleaning interval in seconds. The default value is 5. mc_cleaning_interval Specify the cleaning interval in seconds if clean segments < min_clean_segments. The default value is 1. retry_interval Specify retry interval in seconds. This value provides the retry interval of GC in case of resource shortages. The default value is 60. use_mmap Specify whether to use mmap(2) for reading segments. At present, this option is enabled if supported regardless of this directive. use_set_suinfo Specify whether to use the set_suinfo ioctl if it is supported. This is necessary for the min_reclaimable_blocks feature. By disabling this switch min_reclaimable_blocks is also disabled. min_reclaimable_blocks Specify the minimum number of reclaimable blocks in a segment before it can be cleaned. mc_min_reclaimable_blocks Specify the minimum number of reclaimable blocks in a segment before it can be cleaned. if clean segments < min_clean_segments. min_reclaimable_blocks and mc_min_reclaimable_blocks may be followed by a percent sign or the following multiplicative suffixes: kB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, GB 1000*1000*1000, G 1024*1024*1024, and so on for T, P, E. If the argument is followed by a percent sign, it represents the ratio of blocks in a segment. The default values of min_reclaimable_blocks and mc_min_reclaimable_blocks are 10 percent and 1 percent respectively. log_priority Gives the verbosity level that is used when logging messages from nilfs_clean‐ erd(8). The possible values are: emerg, alert, crit, err, warning, notice, info, and debug. The default is info. Since nilfs-utils 2.1, subsecond value can be specified for time interval parameters in decimal fraction format. This applies to protection_period, clean_check_interval, clean‐ ing_interval, mc_cleaning_interval, and retry_interval.
