nbdkit-random-plugin(1)		    NBDKIT	       nbdkit-random-plugin(1)

NAME
       nbdkit-random-plugin - plugin to	serve random data

SYNOPSIS
	nbdkit random [size=]SIZE [seed=SEED]

DESCRIPTION
       "nbdkit-random-plugin" is a plugin for nbdkit(1)	which serves random
       data, read only.

       The size	of the virtual disk must be specified using the	"size"
       parameter.  If you specify the "seed" parameter then you	will get the
       same random data	over multiple runs with	the same seed.

       The random data is generated using an insecure method.  This plugin is
       mainly good for testing NBD clients.

PARAMETERS
       [size=]SIZE
	   Specify the virtual size of the disk	image.

	   This	parameter is required.

	   "size=" is a	magic config key and may be omitted in most cases.
	   See "Magic parameters" in nbdkit(1).

       seed=SEED
	   Specify the random seed to get repeatable data over multiple	runs.

	   If not specified then a random seed is chosen.

FILES
       $plugindir/nbdkit-random-plugin.so
	   The plugin.

	   Use "nbdkit --dump-config" to find the location of $plugindir.

VERSION
       "nbdkit-random-plugin" first appeared in	nbdkit 1.4.
