           --log=string] [--debug=string] [-d string | --device=string]
           [--connected-mode=string] [-n | --no-fork] [-r string |

     arlad runs on AFS client machines.  It is used to manage the file cache,
     fetch files from AFS servers, handle callbacks and manage the
     authentication information for users.

     In normal cases you will not need to run arlad by yourself, a system
     startup script will start arlad or you can use startarla.

     The options are as follows:

     -t, --test
             Run in test mode.

     -c string, --conffile=string
             Path to configuration file.

     -l string, --log=string
             Where to write log [stderr|syslog|path] (default: stderr).

             What to write in the log (default: none).

     -d string, --device=string
             The NNPFS device to use (default: /dev/nnpfs0).

             Initial connected mode [conncted|fetch-only|disconnected].

     -n, --no-fork
             Don’t fork and daemonize.

     -r string, --rxkad-level=string
             The rxkad level to use [clear|auth|crypt] (default: crypt).

     -s string, --sysname=string
             Set the sysname of this system.

             Name of the root volume.

             Port number to use.

     -z, --recover
             Don’t recover state.

             Cache directory (default: /var/spool/afs).

     -D, --dynroot
             Use dynamic root.

             System and userland cpu-usage times is appended at the end line
             that is logged.

             Print version information.

     --help  Print usage information.


     arlad.conf  default configuration for arlad
     CellServDB  database with all known AFS servers
     ThisCell    default cell (where we get the root directory)

     It is highly recommended that the cache directory be a separate file
     system.  If enough memory is available the cache directory could be a mfs
     to drastically improve performance.
