       gfsched - schedule and display available file system nodes


       gfsched -f gfarm-URL [ -D domain-name ] [ -n number ] [ -LMclw ]

       gfsched [ -P gfarm-URL ] [ -D domain-name ] [ -n number ] [ -LMlw ]


       The  gfsched  command  with  the  -f gfarm-URL option displays available file system nodes
       which have a file replica of the specified gfarm-URL.

       When the -f gfarm-URL option is not specified, the gfsched command just displays available
       file  system  nodes.   In this case, you can specify a metadata server by the -P gfarm-URL
       option, if necessary.


       -D domain-name
              Limits file system node by specifying a domain name or a hostname.

       -c     Displays scheduling information for a file creation, if the file  specified  by  -f
              doesn't exist.

              Currently,  this  option  creates  the  specified  file.  But please note that this
              behavior may be changed in future.

       -L     Suppresses authentication check.  Without this option, the scheduler checks whether
              the  user  will  be  successfully authenticated with the hosts or not.  This option
              omits the check to make scheduling faster, but that creates a risk that hosts which
              fail authentication with the user may be scheduled.

       -M     Suppresses   client-side   scheduling   and   only   performs  metadata-server-side
              scheduling.  This option makes scheduling faster, but  also  creates  a  risk  that
              hosts  which  is  network-unreachable  or fails authentication with the user may be

       -P gfarm-URL
              Specifies a gfarm-URL or a pathname to identify a metadata server which is used for
              the scheduling.  This option conflicts with the -f option.

       -f gfarm-URL
              The  gfsched  command  schedules  file  system nodes which have a replica of a file
              specified by this option.  This option conflicts with the -P option.

       -l     Long format.  This option displays port numbers as well as  hostnames.   Note  that
              the display format of this option may be changed in future.

       -n number
              Displays  specified  number  of  file  system nodes at most.  If this option is not
              specified, it displays all available nodes.

       -w     Schedules with write-mode.  When this option is specified, file system nodes  which
              don't have enough free space won't be displayed.

              When  both  this option and the -f are specified, and if the file is already opened
              by an existing process with write-mode, the gfsched command only displays one  file
              system node which is assigned for writing to the file.

       -?     Displays a list of command options.


       The  following  is an example to inquire file system nodes that the metadata server thinks
       they are currently working.

       $ gfsched -M
