NAME¶gfmd - Gfarm metadata server
DESCRIPTION¶gfmd is a Gfarm filesystem metadata server for accessing the filesystem metadata of the Gfarm filesystem. gfmd must be running on a metadata server node in advance.
It is possible for gfmd to be executed as a non-privileged user process, although only the user that executes the gfmd can be authenticated. Other users cannot use it. For details, see SETUP.private.en document
To access gfmd, the hostname and the port number should be specified by the metadb_server_host and metadb_server_port statements, respectively, in ~/.gfarm2rc or in %%SYSCONFDIR%%/gfarm2.conf on a client node.
If this option is specified and -L is not specified, the log level is set to "debug".
