NAME

       mfschunkserver - start, restart or stop Lizard File System chunkserver
       process

SYNOPSIS

       mfschunkserver [-f] [-c CFGFILE] [-u] [-d] [-t LOCKTIMEOUT] [ACTION]

       mfschunkserver -s [-c CFGFILE]

       mfschunkserver -v

       mfschunkserver -h

DESCRIPTION

       mfschunkserver is the data server of Lizard File System. Depending on
       parameters it can start, restart or stop LizardFS chunkserver process.
       Without any options it starts LizardFS chunkserver, killing previously
       run process if lock file exists.

       SIGHUP (or reload ACTION) forces mfschunkserver to reload all
       configuration files.

       Chunkserver periodically tests stored chunks (see HDD_TEST_FREQ option
       in mfschunkserver.cfg manual).

       LizardFS master doesn’t send metadata change logs to chunkserver and
       expect at least one mfsmetalogger daemon to connect.

       Chunkserver scans attached disks in background.

OPTIONS

       -v
           print version information and exit

       -h
           print usage information and exit

       -f
           (deprecated, use start action instead) forcily run LizardFS
           chunkserver process, without trying to kill previous instance (this
           option allows to run LizardFS chunkserver if stale PID file exists)

       -s
           (deprecated, use stop action instead) stop LizardFS chunkserver
           process

       -c CFGFILE
           specify alternative path of configuration file (default is
           mfschunkserver.cfg in system configuration directory)

       -u
           log undefined configuration values (when default is assumed)

       -d
           run in foreground, don’t daemonize

       -t LOCKTIMEOUT
           how long to wait for lockfile (default is 60 seconds)

       ACTION is the one of start, stop, restart, reload, test, isalive or
       kill. Default action is restart.

FILES

       mfschunkserver.cfg
           configuration file for LizardFS chunkserver process; refer to
           mfschunkserver.cfg(5) manual for defails

       mfshdd.cfg
           list of directories (mountpoints) used for LizardFS storage (one
           per line; directory prefixed by * character causes given directory
           to be freed by replicating all data already stored there to another
           locations)

       mfschunkserver.lock
           PID file of running LizardFS chunkserver process

       .mfschunkserver.lock
           lock file of running LizardFS chunkserver process (created in data
           directory)

       data.csstats
           Chunkserver charts state
