NAME
       swift-object-server - Openstack-swift object server.

SYNOPSIS
       swift-object-server [CONFIG] [-h|--help]	[-v|--verbose]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Object Server is a very simple blob	storage	server that can	store,
       retrieve	and delete objects stored on local devices. Objects are	stored
       as  binary  files  on the filesystem with metadata stored in the	file's
       extended	 attributes  (xattrs).	 This  requires	 that  the  underlying
       filesystem  choice  for	object	servers	 support xattrs	on files. Some
       filesystems, like ext3, have xattrs turned off by default.  Each	object
       is  stored using	a path derived from the	object name's hash and the op-
       eration's timestamp. Last write always wins, and	ensures	that the  lat-
       est object version will be served. A deletion is	also treated as	a ver-
       sion of the file	(a 0 byte file ending with  ".ts",  which  stands  for
       tombstone).  This  ensures  that	deleted	files are replicated correctly
       and older versions don't	magically reappear due to failure scenarios.
