NAME

       vfs_commit - flush dirty data at specified intervals

SYNOPSIS

       vfs objects = commit

DESCRIPTION

       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The vfs_commit VFS module keeps track of the amount of data written to a file and
       synchronizes it to disk when a specified amount accumulates.

       vfs_commit is useful in two circumstances. First, if you have very precious data, the
       impact of unexpected power loss can be minimized by a small commit:dthresh value.
       Secondly, write performance can be improved on some systems by flushing file data early
       and at regular intervals.

       This module is stackable.

OPTIONS

       commit:dthresh = BYTES
           Synchronize file data each time the specified number of bytes has been written.

           The following suffixes may be applied to BYTES:

           ·   K - BYTES is a number of kilobytes

           ·   M - BYTES is a number of megabytes

           ·   G - BYTES is a number of gigabytes

EXAMPLES

       Synchronize the file data on the [precious] share after every 512 kilobytes (524288 bytes)
       of data is written:

                   [precious]
                path = /data/precious
                vfs objects = commit
                commit:dthresh = 512K

CAVEATS

       On some systems, the data synchronization performed by commit may reduce performance.

VERSION

       This man page is correct for version 3.0.25 of the Samba suite.

       is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux
       kernel is developed.
