gfsd(8) - Gfarm filesystem daemon
gfsd [ options ]
gfsd is a filesystem daemon for the Gfarm filesystem, which runs on
every filesystem node, usually, with root privileges.
gfsd provides remote file operations with access control in the Gfarm
filesystem as well as user authentication, file replication, and node
resource status monitoring.
It is possible for gfsd to be executed as a non-privileged user
process, although only the user that executes the gfsd can be
authenticated. Other users cannot use it. For details, see

provide multiple spool directories on the host.
