NAME

       gfmd(8) - Gfarm metadata server

SYNOPSIS

       gfmd [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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 "debug".

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

       -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.

       -?     Displays a list of command options.
