       GlusterFS - Clustered Filesystem.


       glusterfsd [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  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 FileSystem. On client side, it has
       dependency on FUSE package, on server  side,  it  works  seemlessly  on
       different OSes.  (Currently supported on GNU/Linux, Solaris).

       optional for any corresponding short options.

              Socket file to used for inter-process communication

       --brick-name DIRECTORY
              Directory to be used as export directory for GlusterFS

       --brick-port PORT
              Brick Port to be registered with Gluster portmapper

              KEY of the volume file to be fetched from server

              Port number of volfile server

              Transport type to get volume file from server [default: tcp]

              Volume name to be used for MOUNT-POINT [default: top most volume
              in VOLUME-FILE]

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

   Fuse options

       -V, --version
              Print program version




       Start a GlusterFS server on localhost with volume name foo

       glusterfsd   -s   localhost   --volfile-id  -p
