vfs_glusterfs_fuse — Utilize features provided by GlusterFS
vfs objects = glusterfs_fuse
This VFS module is part of the samba(8) suite.
GlusterFS (http://www.gluster.org) is an Open Source clustered file system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. With its FUSE based native client, GlusterFS is available as a POSIX compliant file system and can hence be shared by Samba without additional steps.
vfs_glusterfs_fuse VFS module provides an enhanced way
to access a Gluster filesystem using a Gluster FUSE mount. It provides support
get_real_filename VFS call which enhances file access performance
by avoiding multiple expensive case folding lookup calls to detect the appropriate
case of an existing filename.
Furthermore, this module implements a substitute file-id mechanism. The default file-id mechanism is not working correctly for gluster fuse mount re-exports, so in order to avoid data loss, users exporting gluster fuse mounts with Samba should enable this module.
This module can be combined with other modules, but it
should be the last module in the
list. Modules added to this list to the right of the glusterfs
entry may not have any effect at all.
A basic configuration looks like this.
vfs_glusterfs_fuse requires a Gluster mount. For accessing glusterfs directly
over the GFAPI library please use the
