hubicfuse(8) System Manager's Manual hubicfuse(8)


hubicfuse - mount hubiC storage


hubicfuse <mountpoint> [options]


hubicfuse provides access to hubiC storage via a mountpoint, using FUSE.


hubicfuse accepts the following general options:

displays a help message
displays the version of hubicfuse
enables debug input (implies -f)
starts hubicfuse in the foreground
disables multi-threaded operation
adds an option; this may be repeated as many times as necessary (see fuse(8) for details of the available options)


hubicfuse needs some configuration settings to run; these can be provided as mount options or stored in the .hubicfuse file in the user's home directory. The required settings are:

the Hubic client identifier, which can be obtained from;
the Hubic client secret, which can be obtained along with the identifier;
the authentication token, which can be obtained using the hubic_token script (in /usr/share/hubicfuse).

The following optional settings are available:

the number of seconds directories are kept in the cache (600 by default);
true or false to enable or disable SSL certificate verification (enabled by default);
the size to use when creating DLOs (1073741824 by default, i.e. 1GB);
the file size at which to start using segments (2147483648 by default, i.e. 2GB);
the storage URL for other tenants to view the container;
the public container to expose via the given storage_url;
the directory to use for storing temporary files;
true or false to enable or disable downloading file attributes (detailed time, owner, permissions; enabling this will result in reduced performance)
true or false to enable or disable detailing debugging information on curl requests (this produces lots of output);
true or false to enable or disable progress information on curl requests (mostly useful for debugging);
the number of seconds to cache requests to statfs (cloud statistics), 0 to disable;
0, 1 or 2 to specify the level of debugging verbosity in conjunction with the -d command-line switch (0 selects minimal verbosity);
true to enable chmod support on FUSE;
true to enable chown support on FUSE.
