NAME

       swift-object-server - Openstack-swift object server.

SYNOPSIS

       swift-object-server [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose]

DESCRIPTION

       The Object Server is a very simple blob storage server that can store, retrieve and delete
       objects stored on local devices. Objects are stored as binary files on the filesystem with
       metadata  stored  in  the  file's  extended  attributes  (xattrs).  This requires that the
       underlying filesystem choice for object servers support xattrs on files. Some filesystems,
       like  ext3, have xattrs turned off by default.  Each object is stored using a path derived
       from the object name's hash and the operation's timestamp. Last  write  always  wins,  and
       ensures  that  the  latest  object version will be served. A deletion is also treated as a
       version of the file (a 0 byte file ending with ".ts", which stands  for  tombstone).  This
       ensures  that  deleted  files  are replicated correctly and older versions don't magically
       reappear due to failure scenarios.
