       GlusterFS - clustered file system


       glusterfs [options] [mountpoint]


       GlusterFS  is  a  clustered  file system, capable of scaling to several
       peta-bytes.  It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband  RDMA
       or TCP/IP and interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
       Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware,  such  as  x86-64
       server with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

       GlusterFS  is fully POSIX compliant file system. On client side, it has
       dependency on FUSE package, on server  side,  it  works  seemlessly  on
       different  operating  systems.   Currently  supported  on GNU/Linux and


   Basic options
       -f, --volfile=VOLUME-FILE
              File to use as VOLUME-FILE.

       -l, --log-file=LOGFILE
              File  to   use   for   logging   (the   default   is   <INSTALL-

       -L, --log-level=LOGLEVEL
              Logging   severity.   Valid  options  are  TRACE,  DEBUG,  INFO,
              WARNING, ERROR and CRITICAL (the default is INFO).

       -s, --volfile-server=SERVER
              Server to get the volume from.  This option overrides  --volfile

              Maximum number of connect attempts to server. This option should
              be provided with --volfile-server option (the default is 1).

   Advanced options
       --acl  Mount the filesystem with POSIX ACL support.

              Run in debug mode.  This option sets --no-daemon, --log-level to
              DEBUG, and --log-file to console.

              Use  32-bit  inodes when mounting to workaround application that
              doesn't support 64-bit inodes.

              Do not purge the cache on file open.

              Provide stubs for attributes needed for  seamless  operation  on
              Macs (the default is off).

       -N, --no-daemon
              Run in the foreground.

       -p, --pid-file=PIDFILE
              File to use as PID file.

              Mount the file system in 'read-only' mode.

              Enable SELinux label (extended attributes) support on inodes.

       -S, --socket-file=SOCKFILE
              File to use as unix-socket.

              Key of the volume file to be fetched from the server.

              Port number of volfile server.

              Transport  type  to  get volume file from server (the default is

              Volume name to be used for MOUNT-POINT (the default is top  most
              volume in VOLUME-FILE).

       --worm Mount the filesystem in 'worm' mode.

              Add/Override a translator option for a volume with the specified

   Fuse options
              Set attribute timeout to  SECONDS  for  inodes  in  fuse  kernel
              module (the default is 1).

              Set  fuse  module's background queue length to N (the default is

              Set fuse module's congestion threshold to N (the default is 48).

              Enable/Disable the direct-I/O mode in fuse module  (the  default
              is enable).

              Dump fuse traffic to PATH

              Set  entry timeout to SECONDS in fuse kernel module (the default
              is 1).

              Set auxiliary group list timeout to SECONDS for fuse  translator
              (the default is 0).

              Set  negative  timeout  to  SECONDS  in  fuse kernel module (the
              default is 0).

              Enable strict volume file checking.

   Miscellaneous Options
       -?, --help
              Display this help.

              Display a short usage message.

       -V, --version
              Print the program version.
