cosd - ceph object storage daemon
cosd -i osdnum [ --osd-data datapath ] [ --osd-journal journal ] [
cosd is the object storage daemon for the Ceph distributed file system.
It is responsible for storing objects on a local file system and
providing access to them over the network.
The datapath argument should be a directory on a btrfs file system
where the object data resides. The journal is optional, and is only
useful performance-wise when it resides on a different disk than
datapath with low latency (ideally, an NVRAM device).
-D Debug mode: do not daemonize after startup (run in foreground)
and send log output to stdout.
-f do not daemonize after startup (run in foreground), but log to
the usual location. Useful when run via crun(8).
Use object store at osddata.
Journal updates to journal.
--mkfs Create an empty object repository. Normally invoked by
-c ceph.conf, --conf=ceph.conf
Use ceph.conf configuration file instead of the default
/etc/ceph/ceph.conf for runtime configuration options.
