       swift-container-updater - OpenStack Swift container updater


       swift-container-updater [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [-o|--once]


       The  container  updater  is  responsible for updating container information in the account
       database.  It will walk the container path in the system looking  for  container  DBs  and
       sending updates to the account server as needed as it goes along.

       There  are  times  when  account  data can not be immediately updated. This usually occurs
       during failure scenarios or periods of high load. This is where  an  eventual  consistency
       window will most likely come in to play.

       In practice, the consistency window is only as large as the frequency at which the updater
       runs and may not even be noticed as the proxy server will route listing  requests  to  the
       first  account server which responds. The server under load may not be the one that serves
       subsequent listing requests – one of the other two replicas may handle the listing.

       The options are as follows:

               log to console
               only run one pass of daemon
