NAME

       nilfs_cleanerd.conf - nilfs_cleanerd(8) configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       The  nilfs_cleanerd.conf  file  is  the configuration file for the nilfs_cleanerd(8) which
       reclaims disk space of the NILFS2 filesystem.  This file specifies the parameters  related
       to garbage collection (GC) and behaviour of the daemon program.

       The  file contains keyword argument pairs or keyword-only directives, one per line.  Lines
       starting with '#' are interpreted as comments.  The comment  lines  and  empty  lines  are
       ignored.

PARAMETERS

       The  possible  keywords and their meanings are as follows (keywords and arguments are both
       case-sensitive):

       protection_period
              Specify the period during which each  checkpoint  is  protected  from  the  garbage
              collector (in seconds).  NILFS2 GC never deletes checkpoints and their blocks whose
              duration time is less than the value.  The default value is 3600, meaning one hour.

       min_clean_segments
              Specify the minimum number of  clean  segments.  A  value  of  0  means  continuous
              cleaning.   A   value   greater  than  0  means  pause  cleaning  until  less  than
              min_clean_segments are available.

       max_clean_segments
              Specify the maximum number of clean segments.  If  min_clean_segments  is  0,  this
              value  is ignored. If more than max_clean_segments are available cleaning is paused
              until less than min_clean_segments are available.

       min_clean_segments and max_clean_segments may  be  followed  by  a  percent  sign  or  the
       following  multiplicative  suffixes:  kB  1000,  K  1024,  MB  1000*1000,  M 1024*1024, GB
       1000*1000*1000, G 1024*1024*1024, and so on for T, P, E.  If the argument is followed by a
       percent sign, it represents a disk capacity ratio.

       The  default  values  of  min_clean_segments  and max_clean_segments are 10 percent and 20
       percent respectively.

       clean_check_interval
              Specify  the  interval  to  wait  between   checks   of   min_clean_segments.    If
              min_clean_segments is 0, this value is ignored.  The default value is 10.

       selection_policy
              Specify  the  GC  policy.  At  present, only the `timestamp' policy, which reclaims
              segments in order from oldest to newest, is support.

       nsegments_per_clean
              Specify the number of segments reclaimed by a single cleaning  step.   The  default
              value is 2.

       mc_nsegments_per_clean
              Specify  the  number  of  segments  reclaimed  by  a  single cleaning step if clean
              segments < min_clean_segments.  The default value is 4.

       cleaning_interval
              Specify the cleaning interval in seconds.  The default value is 5.

       mc_cleaning_interval
              Specify the cleaning interval in seconds if clean  segments  <  min_clean_segments.
              The default value is 1.

       retry_interval
              Specify retry interval in seconds.  This value provides the retry interval of GC in
              case of resource shortages.  The default value is 60.

       use_mmap
              Specify whether to use mmap(2) for reading segments.  At present,  this  option  is
              enabled if supported regardless of this directive.

       log_priority
              Gives   the   verbosity   level   that   is   used   when   logging  messages  from
              nilfs_cleanerd(8).  The possible values are:  emerg,  alert,  crit,  err,  warning,
              notice, info, and debug.  The default is info.

       Since  nilfs-utils  2.1,  subsecond value can be specified for time interval parameters in
       decimal  fraction  format.   This  applies  to  protection_period,   clean_check_interval,
       cleaning_interval, mc_cleaning_interval, and retry_interval.
