       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 Solaris.


   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-DIR>/var/log/glusterfs/<MOUNT-

       -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  option.

              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.

              Enable localtime log timestamps.

              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 (default: false).

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

       -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 tcp).

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

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

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

              Mount subdirectory instead of the '/' of volume.

   Fuse options
              Declare  supported  granularity  of file attribute times (default is 0 which kernel
              handles as unspecified; valid real values are between 1 and 1000000000).

              Set attribute timeout to SECONDS for inodes in fuse kernel module (the  default  is

              Set fuse module's background queue length to N (the default is 64).

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

              Specify fuse direct I/O strategy (the default is auto).

              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).

              Enable fuse in-kernel writeback cache.

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

              controls  whether fuse-kernel can auto-invalidate attribute, dentry and page-cache.
              Disable this only if same files/directories are not accessed across  two  different
              mounts concurrently [default: on].

              Enable strict volume file checking.

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

              Display a short usage message.

       -V, --version
              Print the program version.




       mount a volume named foo on server bar with log level DEBUG on mount point /mnt/foo
