NAME
vfs_shadow_copy - Make a Samba share read only for a specified time period SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = shadow_copy DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. The vfs_shadow_copy VFS module functionality that is similar to Microsoft Shadow Copy services. When setup properly, this module allows Mi- crosoft Shadow Copy clients to browse "shadow copies" on Samba shares. This module is stackable. CONFIGURATION
vfs_shadow_copy relies on a filesystem snapshot implementation. Many common filesystems have native support for this. Filesystem snapshots must be mounted on specially named directories in order to be recognized by vfs_shadow_copy. The snapshot mount points must be immediate children of a the directory being shared. The snapshot naming convention is @GMT-YYYY.MM.DD-hh.mm.ss, where: o YYYY is the 4 digit year o MM is the 2 digit month o DD is the 2 digit day o hh is the 2 digit hour o mm is the 2 digit minute o ss is the 2 digit second. The vfs_shadow_copy snapshot naming convention can be produced with the following date(1) command: TZ=GMT date +@GMT-%Y.%m.%d-%H.%M.%S EXAMPLES
Add shadow copy support to user home directories: [homes] vfs objects = shadow_copy CAVEATS
This is not a backup, archival, or version control solution. With Samba or Windows servers, vfs_shadow_copy is designed to be an end-user tool only. It does not replace or enhance your backup and archival solutions and should in no way be considered as such. Additionally, if you need version control, implement a version control sys- tem. VERSION

NAME
vfs_readahead - pre-load the kernel buffer cache SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = readahead DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. This vfs_readahead VFS module detects read requests at multiples of a given offset (hex 0x80000 by default) and then tells the kernel via either the readahead system call (on Linux) or the posix_fadvise system call to pre-fetch this data into the buffer cache. This module is useful for Windows Vista clients reading data using the Windows Explorer program, which asynchronously does multiple file read requests at offset boundaries of 0x80000 bytes. The offset multiple used is given by the readahead:offset option, which defaults to 0x80000. The size of the disk read operations performed by vfs_readahead is determined by the readahead:length option. By default this is set to the same value as the readahead:offset option and if not set explicitly will use the current value of readahead:offset. This module is stackable. OPTIONS
readahead:offset = BYTES The offset multiple that causes readahead to be requested of the kernel buffer cache. readahead:length = BYTES The number of bytes requested to be read into the kernel buffer cache on each readahead call. The following suffixes may be applied to BYTES: o K - BYTES is a number of kilobytes o M - BYTES is a number of megabytes o G - BYTES is a number of gigabytes EXAMPLES
