vfs objects = commit
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
vfs_commit VFS module keeps track of

disk when a specified amount accumulates.
vfs_commit is useful in two

This module is stackable.
Synchronize file data each time the specified number of bytes has been written.
The following suffixes may be applied to BYTES:
K - BYTES is a number of kilobytes
M - BYTES is a number of megabytes
G - BYTES is a number of gigabytes
Synchronize the file data on the [precious] share after every 512 kilobytes (524288 bytes) of data is written:
