NAME

       gfsched - schedule and display available file system nodes

SYNOPSIS

       gfsched -f gfarm-URL [-D domain-name] [-n number] [-LMOSclw]

       gfsched [-P gfarm-URL] [-D domain-name] [-n number] [-LMOSlw]

DESCRIPTION

       The gfsched command with the -f gfarm-URL option displays available file system nodes
       which have a file replica of the specified gfarm-URL.

       When the -f gfarm-URL option is not specified, the gfsched command just displays available
       file system nodes. In this case, you can specify a metadata server by the -P gfarm-URL
       option, if necessary.

OPTIONS

       -D domain-name
           Limits file system node by specifying a domain name or a hostname.

       -c
           Displays scheduling information for a file creation, if the file specified by -f
           doesn't exist.

           Currently, this option creates the specified file. But please note that this behavior
           may be changed in future.

       -L
           Suppresses authentication check. Without this option, the scheduler checks whether the
           user will be successfully authenticated with the hosts or not. This option omits the
           check to make scheduling faster, but that creates a risk that hosts which fail
           authentication with the user may be scheduled.

       -M
           Suppresses client-side scheduling and only performs metadata-server-side scheduling.
           This option makes scheduling faster, but also creates a risk that hosts which is
           network-unreachable or fails authentication with the user may be scheduled.

       -O
           Displays filesystem nodes where the hosts are other than the host that the gfsched
           command is running.

       -P gfarm-URL
           Specifies a gfarm-URL or a pathname to identify a metadata server which is used for
           the scheduling. This option conflicts with the -f option.

       -S
           Displays a filesystem node where the host is same with the host that the gfsched
           command is running.

       -f gfarm-URL
           The gfsched command schedules file system nodes which have a replica of a file
           specified by this option. This option conflicts with the -P option.

       -l
           Long format. This option displays port numbers as well as hostnames. Note that the
           display format of this option may be changed in future.

       -n number
           Displays specified number of file system nodes at most. If this option is not
           specified, it displays all available nodes.

       -w
           Schedules with write-mode. When this option is specified, file system nodes which
           don't have enough free space won't be displayed.

           When both this option and the -f are specified, and if the file is already opened by
           an existing process with write-mode, the gfsched command only displays one file system
           node which is assigned for writing to the file.

       -?
           Displays a list of command options.

EXAMPLES

       The following is an example to inquire file system nodes that the metadata server thinks
       they are currently working.

           $ gfsched -M
