       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 dif-
       ferent  operating  systems.   Currently	supported on GNU/Linux and So-

   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-

       -L, --log-level=LOGLEVEL
	      Logging  severity.   Valid options are TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARN-
	      ING, ERROR and CRITICAL (the default is INFO).

       -s, --volfile-server=SERVER
	      Server to	get the	volume from.  This option overrides  --volfile

	      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 off).

       -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

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

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

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

	      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  mod-
	      ule (the default is 1).

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

	      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  de-
	      fault is 0).

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

	      Enable strict volume file	checking.

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

	      Display a	short usage message.

       -V, --version
	      Print the	program	version.
