       gfmd(8) - Gfarm metadata server


       gfmd [ options ]


       gfmd  is  a  Gfarm filesystem metadata server for accessing the filesystem metadata of the
       Gfarm filesystem.  gfmd must be running on a metadata server node in advance.

       It is possible for gfmd to be executed as a non-privileged user process, although only the
       user  that  executes  the  gfmd  can  be  authenticated.   Other users cannot use it.  For
       details, see SETUP.private.en document

       To  access  gfmd,  the  hostname  and  the  port  number  should  be  specified   by   the
       metadb_server_host  and  metadb_server_port statements, respectively, in ~/.gfarm2rc or in
       %%SYSCONFDIR%%/gfarm2.conf on a client node.


       -L log-level
              Specifies a log priority level.  The log output, which priority is higher or  equal
              to   this  level,  will  be  sent  to  syslog  or  standard  error.   Please  refer
              gfarm2.conf(5) for the priority levels which can be specified by this option.

       -P pid-file
              Specifies a file name to be used to record the process ID of gfmd.

       -d     Specifies the debug mode.  With the -d option, gfmd runs as a  foreground  process,
              not a daemon.

              If  this  option  is  specified  and  -L  is not specified, the log level is set to

       -f config-file
              Specifies a configuration file that is read instead of  the  default  configuration

       -p port
              Specifies a port number to be used by gfmd.

       -s syslog-facility
              Specifies  a  syslog  facility  to  report errors encountered by gfmd.  By default,
              local0 is used.

       -v     Makes gfmd output verbose log message on authentication.  This is useful, when  one
              has to resolve an issue about GSI authenticaion.
