       GlusterFS - Clustered Filesystem.


       glusterfsd [options] [mountpoint]


       GlusterFS  is  a  clustered  file-system  capable  of  scaling  to several peta-bytes.  It
       aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or  TCP/IP  interconnect  into  one
       large  parallel  network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware
       such as x86-64 server with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

       GlusterFS is fully POSIX compliant FileSystem. On client side, it has dependency  on  FUSE
       package,  on  server side, it works seemlessly on different OSes.  (Currently supported on
       GNU/Linux, Solaris).


       Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory  or  optional  for  any
       corresponding short options.

   Basic options
       -f, --volfile=VOLUME-FILE
              File to use as VOLUME-FILE [default:/etc/glusterfs/glusterfs.vol]

       -l, --log-file=LOGFILE
              File to use for logging [default:/var/log/glusterfs/glusterfs.log]

       -L, --log-level=LOGLEVEL
              Logging  severity.   Valid  options  are  TRACE,  DEBUG,  INFO,  WARNING, ERROR and
              CRITICAL [default: WARNING]

       -s, --volfile-server=SERVER
              Server to get the volume from.  This option overrides --volfile option

   Advanced options
              Enable localtime log timestamps.

              Run in debug  mode.   This  option  sets  --no-daemon,  --log-level  to  DEBUG  and
              --log-file to console

       -N, --no-daemon
              Run in foreground

              Makes the filesystem read-only

       -p, --pid-file=PIDFILE
              File to use as pid file

       -S SOCKFILE
              Socket file to used for inter-process communication

       --brick-name DIRECTORY
              Directory to be used as export directory for GlusterFS

       --brick-port PORT
              Brick Port to be registered with Gluster portmapper

              KEY of the volume file to be fetched from server

              Port number of volfile server

              Transport type to get volume file from server [default: tcp]

              Volume name to be used for MOUNT-POINT [default: top most volume in VOLUME-FILE]

              Add/override a translator option for a volume with the specified value

   Fuse options
              Set attribute timeout to SECONDS for inodes in fuse kernel module [default: 1]

              Set entry timeout to SECONDS in fuse kernel module [default: 1]

              Enable/Disable direct-io mode in fuse module [default: enable]

              Resolve all auxiliary groups in fuse translator (max 32 otherwise)

              controls  whether fuse-kernel can auto-invalidate attribute, dentry and page-cache.
              Disable this only if same files/directories are not accessed across  two  different
              mounts concurrently [default: on]

   Miscellaneous Options
       -?, --help
              Give this help list

              Give a short usage message

       -V, --version
              Print program version




       Start a GlusterFS server on localhost with volume name foo

       glusterfsd       -s       localhost      --volfile-id      -p
       /var/lib/glusterd/vols/foo/run/ -S /tmp/<uniqueid>.socket  --brick-
       name   /media/disk-1   -l  /var/log/glusterfs/bricks/media-disk-1.log  --brick-port  24009
       --xlator-option foo-server.listen-port=24009
