NAME

gvfsd-metadata - Metadata daemon for gvfs

SYNOPSIS

gvfs-metadata [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

gvfsd-metadata is a daemon acting as a write serialiser to the internal gvfs metadata storage. It is autostarted by GIO clients when they make metadata changes. Read operations are done by client-side GIO code directly, and don't require the daemon to be running.
The gvfs metadata capabilities are used by the nautilus file manager, for example.

--version

-r, --replace
Replace the currently running instance.

EXIT STATUS

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.

FILES

The directory where the gvfs metadata database files are stored
