NAME

       ceph-syn - ceph synthetic workload generator

SYNOPSIS

       ceph-syn [ -m monaddr:port ] --syn command ...

DESCRIPTION

       ceph-syn is a simple synthetic workload generator for the Ceph distributed file system. It
       uses the userspace client library to generate simple workloads against a currently running
       file system. The file system need not be mounted via ceph-fuse(8) or the kernel client.

       One or more --syn command arguments specify the particular workload, as documented below.

OPTIONS

       -d     Detach from console and daemonize after startup.

       -c ceph.conf, --conf=ceph.conf
              Use  ceph.conf  configuration  file  instead  of the default /etc/ceph/ceph.conf to
              determine monitor addresses during startup.

       -m monaddress[:port]
              Connect to specified monitor (instead of looking through ceph.conf).

       --num_client num
              Run num different clients, each in a separate thread.

       --syn workloadspec
              Run the given workload. May be specified as many times as  needed.  Workloads  will
              normally run sequentially.

WORKLOADS

       Each  workload  should  be  preceded  by --syn on the command line. This is not a complete
       list.

       mknap path snapname
              Create a snapshot called snapname on path.

       rmsnap path snapname
              Delete snapshot called snapname on path.

       rmfile path
              Delete/unlink path.

       writefile sizeinmb blocksize
              Create a file, named after our client id, that is sizeinmb MB by writing  blocksize
              chunks.

       readfile sizeinmb blocksize
              Read  file,  named  after  our  client id, that is sizeinmb MB by writing blocksize
              chunks.

       rw sizeinmb blocksize
              Write file, then read it back, as above.

       makedirs numsubdirs numfiles depth
              Create a hierarchy of directories that is depth levels deep.  Give  each  directory
              numsubdirs subdirectories and numfiles files.

       walk   Recursively walk the file system (like find).
