gvfs - GIO virtual file system DESCRIPTION
GIO provides a VFS API to GLib applications. It includes a 'local' implementation using POSIX. gvfs provides implementations that go beyond that and allow to access files and storage using many protocols, such as ftp, http, sftp, dav, obexftp, etc. It also provides support for trash folders, for cd burning and for monitoring interesting devices and volumes on the computer. Applications use gvfs indirectly, by means of GIO loading the gvfs module that implements the GIO extension points. The gvfs support for volume monitoring is included in a separate loadable module. The actual gvfs implementation is distributed over a number of processes. None of these are expected to be started from the commandline, except for debugging purposes. Main processes: o gvfsd - the main gvfs daemon o gvfs-fuse-daemon - mounts gvfs as a fuse filesystem o gvfsd-metadata - writes gvfs metadata Volume monitors: o gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor - a udisks-based volume monitor o gvfs-afc-volume-monitor - a volume monitor for Apple iPhone/iPod Touch devices Mount backends: o gvfsd-afc - mounts iPhone/iPod touch volumes o gvfsd-afp - mounts Apple Filing Protocol volumes o gvfsd-afp-browse - browses Apple Filing Protocol volumes o gvfsd-archive - mounts archive files in various formats o gvfsd-burn - provides a location for burning CDs o gvfsd-cdda - mounts audio CDs o gvfsd-computer - provides computer:// o gvfsd-dav - mounts DAV filesystems o gvfsd-dnssd - browses dnssd o gvfsd-ftp - mounts over FTP o gvfsd-http - mounts over HTTP o gvfsd-localtest - a test backend o gvfsd-network - provides network:// o gvfsd-obexftp - mounts over obexftp o gvfsd-recent - provides recent:// o gvfsd-sftp - mounts over sftp o gvfsd-smb - mounts Windows Shares Filesystem volumes o gvfsd-smb-browse - browses Windows Shares Filesystem volumes o gvfsd-trash - provides trash:// ENVIRONMENT
GIO_USE_VFS If set, specifies the GIO vfs implementation to use. Possible values include 'local' and 'gvfs'. GIO_USE_VOLUME_MONITOR If set, specifies the GIO volume monitor implementation to use. Possible values include 'unix', 'GProxyVolumeMonitorUDisks2', as well as other native volume monitors that are described in the key files in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors. FILES
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/mounts This directory contains key files describing mount daemons. $XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors This directory contains key files describing remote volume monitors. SEE ALSO

vgsplit - split a volume group into two SYNOPSIS
vgsplit [--alloc AllocationPolicy] [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-c|--clustered {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-l|--maxlogicalvolumes MaxLogi- calVolumes] [-M|--metadatatype type] [-p|--maxphysicalvolumes MaxPhysicalVolumes] [-n|--name LogicalVolumeName] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] SourceVolumeGroupName DestinationVolumeGroupName [ PhysicalVolumePath ...] DESCRIPTION
vgsplit moves one or more physical volumes from SourceVolumeGroupName into DestinationVolumeGroupName. The physical volumes moved can be specified either explicitly via PhysicalVolumePath, or implicitly by -n LogicalVolumeName, in which case only physical volumes underlying the specified logical volume will be moved. If DestinationVolumeGroupName does not exist, a new volume group will be created. The default attributes for the new volume group can be specified with --alloc, --clustered, --maxlogicalvolumes, --metadatatype, and --maxphysicalvolumes (see vgcreate(8) for a description of these options). If any of these options are not given, default attribute(s) are taken from SourceVolumeGroupName. If a non-LVM2 metadata type (e.g. lvm1) is being used, you should use the -M option to specify the metadata type directly. If DestinationVolumeGroupName does exist, it will be checked for compatibility with SourceVolumeGroupName before the physical volumes are moved. Specifying any of the above default volume group attributes with an existing destination volume group is an error, and no split will occur. Logical volumes cannot be split between volume groups. Vgsplit(8) only moves complete physical volumes: To move part of a physical volume, use pvmove(8). Each existing logical volume must be entirely on the physical volumes forming either the source or the destination volume group. For this reason, vgsplit(8) may fail with an error if a split would result in a logical volume being split across volume groups. OPTIONS
