       gfsd - Gfarm filesystem daemon


       gfsd [options]


       gfsd is a filesystem daemon for the Gfarm filesystem, which runs on
       every filesystem node, usually, with root privileges.

       gfsd provides remote file operations with access control in the Gfarm
       filesystem as well as user authentication, file replication, and node
       resource status monitoring.

       It is possible for gfsd to be executed as a non-privileged user
       process, although only the user that executes the gfsd can be
       authenticated. Other users cannot use it. For details, see
       SETUP.private.en document.


       -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 which records the process ID of gfsd.

           When starting up, gfsd investigates all files stored in a spool
           directory. This option is useful when a hostname of a file system
           node is changed. Valid file copies will be registered to the
           metadata server.

           When the -c option is specified twice (or the -cc option), invalid
           file copies that are not registered in the metadata server are

           When the -c option is specified three times (or the -ccc option),
           invalid file copies that are not registered in the metadata server
           are moved to the lost+found directory in the Gfarm file system.
           Furthermore, invalid metadata pointing to a missing file copy of
           the file system node are deleted. This is the default behavior.

           Specifies the debug mode. With the -d option, gfsd 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.

       -h hostname
           Specifies my own canonical host name.

       -l IP-address
           Specifies the IP address from which the gfsd accepts TCP and UDP
           requests. The default address is all IP addresses of the host. This
           option is useful to invoke multiple instances of gfsd to provide
           multiple spool directories on the host.

       -r directory
           Specifies a spool directory for a Gfarm filesystem on this
           filesystem node.

       -s syslog-facility
           Specifies a syslog facility to report errors by gfsd. By default,
           local0 is used.

           Makes gfsd 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.
