The command enables administrators to perform cloud operations, such as creating, expanding, shrinking, rebalancing, and migrating volumes without needing to schedule server downtime. COMMANDS
Volume Commands volume info [all|<VOLNAME>] Display information about all volumes, or the specified volume. volume create <NEW-VOLNAME> [stripe <COUNT>] [replica <COUNT>] [transport <tcp|rdma|tcp,rdma>] <NEW-BRICK> ... Create a new volume of the specified type using the specified bricks and transport type (the default transport type is tcp). To create a volume with both transports (tcp and rdma), give 'transport tcp,rdma' as an option. volume delete <VOLNAME> Delete the specified volume. volume start <VOLNAME> Start the specified volume. volume stop <VOLNAME> [force] Stop the specified volume. volume rename <VOLNAME> <NEW-VOLNAME> Rename the specified volume. volume set <VOLNAME> <OPTION> <PARAMETER> [<OPTION> <PARAMETER>] ... Set the volume options. volume help Display help for the volume command. Brick Commands volume add-brick <VOLNAME> <NEW-BRICK> ... Add the specified brick to the specified volume. volume remove-brick <VOLNAME> <BRICK> ... Remove the specified brick from the specified volume. Note: If you remove the brick, the data stored in that brick will not be available. You can migrate data from one brick to another using replace-brick option. volume rebalance-brick <VOLNAME>(<BRICK> <NEW-BRICK>) start Start rebalancing the specified volume. volume rebalance <VOLNAME> stop Stop rebalancing the specified volume. volume rebalance <VOLNAME> status Display the rebalance status of the specified volume. volume replace-brick <VOLNAME> (<BRICK> <NEW-BRICK>) start|pause|abort|status|commit Replace the specified brick. Log Commands volume log filename <VOLNAME> [BRICK] <DIRECTORY> Set the log directory for the corresponding volume/brick. volume log locate <VOLNAME> [BRICK] Locate the log file for corresponding volume/brick. volume log rotate <VOLNAME> [BRICK] Rotate the log file for corresponding volume/brick. Peer Commands peer probe <HOSTNAME> Probe the specified peer. peer detach <HOSTNAME> Detach the specified peer. peer status Display the status of peers. peer help Display help for the peer command.

NAME
GlusterFS - Clustered Filesystem. SYNOPSIS
glusterfsd [options] [mountpoint] DESCRIPTION
GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP 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 FileSystem. On client side, it has dependency on FUSE package, on server side, it works seemlessly on different OSes. (Currently supported on GNU/Linux, Solaris). OPTIONS
Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or optional for any corresponding short options. Basic options -f, --volfile=VOLUME-FILE File to use as VOLUME-FILE [default:/etc/glusterfs/glusterfs.vol] -l, --log-file=LOGFILE File to use for logging [default:/var/log/glusterfs/glusterfs.log] -L, --log-level=LOGLEVEL Logging severity. Valid options are TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR and CRITICAL [default: WARNING] -s, --volfile-server=SERVER Server to get the volume from. This option overrides --volfile option Advanced options --debug Run in debug mode. This option sets --no-daemon, --log-level to DEBUG and --log-file to console -N, --no-daemon Run in foreground --read-only Makes the filesystem read-only -p, --pid-file=PIDFILE File to use as pid file -S SOCKFILE Socket file to used for inter-process communication --brick-name DIRECTORY Directory to be used as export directory for GlusterFS --brick-port PORT Brick Port to be registered with Gluster portmapper --volfile-id=KEY KEY of the volume file to be fetched from server --volfile-server-port=PORT Port number of volfile server --volfile-server-transport=TRANSPORT Transport type to get volume file from server [default: tcp] --volume-name=VOLUME-NAME Volume name to be used for MOUNT-POINT [default: top most volume in VOLUME-FILE] --xlator-option=VOLUME-NAME.OPTION=VALUE Add/override a translator option for a volume with the specified value Fuse options --attribute-timeout=SECONDS Set attribute timeout to SECONDS for inodes in fuse kernel module [default: 1] --entry-timeout=SECONDS Set entry timeout to SECONDS in fuse kernel module [default: 1] --direct-io-mode=BOOL Enable/Disable direct-io mode in fuse module [default: enable] Miscellaneous Options -?, --help Give this help list --usage Give a short usage message -V, --version Print program version FILES
