NAME

       gfrep - replicate Gfarm files

SYNOPSIS

       gfrep [-mnqvx] [-S source-domainname] [-D destination-domainname] [-h source-hostfile]
             [-H destination-hostfile] [-N num-of-replicas] [-j num-of-threads] path...

DESCRIPTION

       gfrep creates specified number of replicas of Gfarm files specified by the path to
       specified set of destination hosts. When set of source hosts are specified, only files
       stored on the set of source hosts are replicated. A set of hosts can be specified by a
       domain name and/or a host file. When both a domain name and a host file are specified, a
       set of hosts is determined by both conditions.

       If the path parameter is a directory, files under the directory will be copied
       recursively.

OPTIONS

       -S source-domainname
           Specifies the domain name of source filesystem nodes from which replicas will be
           copied.

       -D destination-domainname
           Specifies the domain name of destination filesystem nodes to which replicas will be
           copied.

           If neither this nor the -H option is specified, replicas may be copied to any
           available host.

       -h source-hostfile
           Specifies a file which describes hostnames of source filesystem nodes from which the
           replica will be made. The source-hostfile consists of a filesystem node name on each
           line.

           if ``-'' is specified, standard input is used to read the host list.

       -H destination-hostfile
           Specifies a file which describes hostnames of destination filesystem nodes on which
           the replica will be made. The destination-hostfile consists of a filesystem node name
           on each line.

           if ``-'' is specified, standard input is used to read the host list.

       -N num-of-replicas
           Specifies the required number of file replicas, counting already existing ones. If
           there are a sufficient number of replicas in the destination hosts, neither any
           copying nor any removal will be done.

           If this option is not specified, -N 1 is assumed.

       -j num-of-threads
           Specifies the number of threads to create file replicas simultaneously. This option is
           only available when compiled by an OpenMP C compiler. By default, it will be the
           smallest among the number of total files, the number of source hosts, and the number
           of destination hosts.

       -m
           Lets gfrep command do a migrate/move, instead of doing replication.

       -x
           Removes file replicas when a set of destination nodes has more file replicas than
           specified.

       -n
           Displays files to be replicated, but does nothing.

       -q
           Suppresses non-error messages.

       -v
           Displays verbose output.

       -?
           Displays a list of command options.

BUGS

       A source host is not always selected within a set of source hosts.
