vacfs – a Venti-based file system|
vacfs [ −dip ] [ −h host ] [ −m mtpt ] [ −s srvname ] [ −M mem
Vacfs interprets the file system created by vac(1) so that it
can be mounted into a Plan 9 file hierarchy. The data for the
file system is stored on a Venti server with a root fingerprint
specified in vacfile. Vacfs is currently rather limited: access
is read-only, clients are not authenticated, and groups are assumed
to contain a single member with the same
name. These restrictions should eventually be removed.
Options to vacfs are:|
−d Print debugging information to standard error.
−i Use file descriptors 0 and 1 as the 9P communication channel
rather than create a pipe.
The network address of the Venti server. The default is taken
from the environment variable venti. If this variable does not
exist, then the default is the metaname $venti.|
−p Disables permission checking.
The location to mount the file system. The default is not to mount.|
−s The name of the 9P service to post. The default is vacfs.name,
where name is vacfile without any directory name or .vac extension.
The amount of memory, in bytes, allocated to the block cache.
The default is 16M.|
