     afsd - AFS cache manager

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     afsd  [-c  string  |   --conffile=string]   [-l   string   |
          [--debug=string] [-d string | --device=string]
          [--connected-mode=string] [-n | --no-fork] [-r string |
          level=string]   [-s    string    |    --sysname=string]
          [--port=number] [-z | --recover] [--cache-dir=string]
          [-D  |  --dynroot]  [--cpu-usage]  [--version] [--help]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     afsd runs on AFS client machines.  It is used to manage  the
file cache,
     fetch  files  from  AFS servers, handle callbacks and manage
the authentication
 information for users.

     In normal cases afsd will  be  started  by  enabling  it  in

     The options are as follows:

     -c string, --conffile=string
             Path to configuration file.

     -l string, --log=string
             Where  to  write  log [stderr|syslog|path] (default:

             What to write in the log (default: none).

     -d string, --device=string
             The XFS device to use  (default: /dev/xfs0).

             Initial connected mode  [conncted|fetch-only|disconnected].

     -n, --no-fork
             Don't fork and daemonize.

     -r string, --rxkad-level=string
             The  rxkad level to use [clear|auth|crypt] (default:

     -s string, --sysname=string
             Set the sysname of this system.

             Name of the root volume.

             Port number to use.

     -z, --recover
             Don't recover state.

             Cache directory  (default: /var/spool/afs).

     -D, --dynroot
             Use dynamic root.

             System and userland cpu-usage times is  appended  at
the end line
             that is logged.

             Print version information.

     --help  Print usage information.

     It  is  highly recommended that the cache filesystem size is
increased to
     at least few hundred megabytes, and that it  is  made  as  a
     filesystem.   The  cache size is configured in afsd.conf(5).
If enough
     memory is available the cache filesystem could be  a  mfs(8)
to improve

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/afs/afsd.conf   default configuration for afsd
     /etc/afs/CellServDB  database with all known AFS servers
     /etc/afs/ThisCell    default cell (where we get the root directory)
     /var/spool/afs       default cache directory

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     fs(1), pts(1), afsd.conf(5), AliasDB(5), CellServDB(5), DynRootDB(5),
     SuidCells(5),   ThisCell(5),   mount_mfs(8),   mount_xfs(8),
rc.conf(8), vos(8)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     If afsd happens to crash, it's  recommended  to  restart  it
with the -z
     flag.  Otherwise a corrupted cache can be reused.
