       vfs_aio_pthread - implement async open in Samba vfs using a pthread pool


       vfs objects = aio_pthread


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

       The aio_pthread VFS module enables asynchronous opens (for new files) with aio_pthread:aio
       open = yes on platforms which have the pthreads API available, support the openat()
       syscall and support per thread credentials (modern Linux kernels).

       The module makes use of the global thread pool which uses the aio max threads option.

       This module MUST be listed last in any module stack as the Samba VFS open interface is not
       thread-safe. This module makes direct openat() system calls and does NOT call the Samba
       VFS open interfaces.


       Straight forward use:

                path = /data/ice
                vfs objects = aio_pthread
                aio_pthread:aio open = yes


       aio_pthread:aio open = BOOL
           Try async opens for creating new files.

           The default is 'no'.


       This man page is part of version 4.16.4-Ubuntu of the Samba suite.


       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba
       is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux
       kernel is developed.
