       diod.conf - distributed I/O daemon configuration file


       The  diod.conf file is actually a LUA script.  Internal config defaults
       are overridden by settings in the file, and some of those values can in
       turn be overridden on the command line.

       Config  settings  take  the form of LUA global variables which are read
       out after the config file is executed.  Therefore, the values  of  said
       variables can either be statically assigned or computed.  The variables
       are described below.


       listen = { "IP:PORT" [,"IP:PORT",...] }
              List the interfaces and ports that diod should listen  on.   The
              default is "".

       exports = { "/path" [, "/path", ...] }
              List  the  file  systems  that clients will be allowed to mount.
              All paths should be fully  qualified.   The  exports  table  can
              include  two types of element, a string element (as above), or a
              table element of the form { path="/path", opts="ro" }.  The path
              attribute  is  mandatory, and the opts attribute is an optional,
              comma-separated list of  export  options.   Currently  the  only
              supported options are "ro" (export read-only) and "suppress" (no
              export).  The two table  element  forms  can  be  mixed  in  the
              exports  table.   Note that although diod will not traverse file
              system boundaries for a given  mount  due  to  inode  uniqueness
              constraints,  subdirectories  of a file system can be separately

       exportall = 1
              Export all file systems listed in  /proc/mounts.   If  new  file
              systems  are  mounted  after  diod has started, they will become
              immediately mountable.  If there is a duplicate entry for a file
              system  in  the  exports list, any options listed in the exports
              entry will apply.

       nwthreads = INTEGER
              Sets the (fixed) number of worker threads created to  handle  9P
              requests for a unique aname.  The default is 16 per aname.

       auth_required = 0
              Allow  clients to connect without authentication, i.e. without a
              valid munge credential.

       userdb = 0
              This option disables password/group lookups.  It allows any  uid
              to  attach and assumes gid=uid, and supplementary groups contain
              only the primary gid.

       allsquash = 1
              Remap all users to "nobody".  The attaching  user  need  not  be
              present in the password file.

       squashuser = "nobody"
              Change  the  squash user from the default of nobody.  The squash
              user must be present in the password file.

       logdest = "DEST"
              Set the destination  for  logging.   DEST  is  in  the  form  of
              syslog:facility:level    or    filename.     The    default   is


       -- example diod.conf
       listen = { "" }
       exports = {
            { path="/usr/local", opts="ro" },
       nwthreads = 8
