       and/or gfmd. The location of the seesion key file can be specified by shared_key_file in

       When the home directory is shared among filesystem nodes, it is not necessary to use this
       command. If not, it is necessary to distribute a session key created with the -c or -f
       option to every filesystem node, in advance.

       -p period
           Specifies the term of validity in seconds. This option has to be used with the -c or
           -f option. Default is 86400 seconds (1 day).

           Displays the expiration date of the current key.

       -L message-priority-level
           Specifies a level of the log priority. The log messages that have higher or the same
           priority than the specified priority are displayed to the standard error. The default
           priority is info. Refer to the log_level directive described in the manual page of
           gfarm2.conf(5) for the priority level which can be specified by this option.
