       vfs_glusterfs_fuse - Utilize features provided by GlusterFS


       vfs objects = glusterfs_fuse


       This VFS module is part of the samba(8) suite.

       GlusterFS ( is an Open Source clustered file system capable of
       scaling to several peta-bytes. With its FUSE based native client, GlusterFS is available
       as a POSIX compliant file system and can hence be shared by Samba without additional

       The vfs_glusterfs_fuse VFS module provides an enhanced way to access a Gluster filesystem
       using a Gluster FUSE mount. It provides support for the get_real_filename VFS call which
       enhances file access performance by avoiding multiple expensive case folding lookup calls
       to detect the appropriate case of an exisiting filename.

       This module can be combined with other modules, but it should be the last module in the
       vfs objects list. Modules added to this list to the right of the glusterfs entry may not
       have any effect at all.


       A basic configuration looks like this.

                     vfs objects = glusterfs_fuse
                     path = /absolute/path_of_fusemount

       Note that vfs_glusterfs_fuse requires a Gluster mount. For accessing glusterfs directly
       over the GFAPI library please use the vfs_glusterfs module.


       This module does currently have no further options.

       kernel is developed.
