       gfmd - 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.

           Runs as slave forcedly, even if the gfmd is set to default master.

           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.

           Enables an audit log feature for file creation, modification and

           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.
