mfsbdev - MooseFS block device daemon/management tool
mfsbdev start [-H masterhost] [-P masterport] [-S masterpath] [-p masterpassword | -x passwordfile] [-l linksocket] [-F]
mfsbdev stop [-l linksocket]
mfsbdev map [-l linksocket] -f mfsfile [-d nbddevice] [-n linkname] [-s bdevsize] [-r]
mfsbdev unmap [-l linksocket] ( -f mfsfile | -d nbddevice | -n linkname )
mfsbdev list [-l linksocket] [-t m|u]
mfsbdev resize [-l linksocket] ( -f mfsfile | -d nbddevice | -n linkname ) [-s bdevsize]
This tool is used to manage block devices. This tool works in Linux ONLY. Kernel module nbd must be loaded for this tool to work properly.
start - starts the daemon; the daemon only listens on a socket at this point; all the other commands use the socket to communicate with the daemon; if no socket is specified via -l option, the default is used: /dev/mfs/nbdsock
stop - stops the daemon
map - maps a file on mfs to be used as a block device
unmap - removes a mapping
list - lists current mappings
resize - changes the size of a block device (requires kernel version 4.18 or higher)
-H - master host; default is 'mfsmaster'
-P - master port; default is '9421'
-S - master path (subfolder in MFS that will be used as a root for all block device mappings); default is '/'
-p - master password; mutually exclusive with -x option; if neither -p nor -x are supplied, the tool tries to connect without a password
-x - path to a file containing master password; mutually exclusive with -p option; if neither -p nor -x are supplied, the tool tries to connect without a password
-l - path to communication socket; default is /dev/mfs/nbdsock
-F - do not daemonize the tool (run in foreground)
-f - path to mfs file used to map block device;
-d - path to network block device ('/dev/nbdX'); by default (if this parameter is not supplied) first available device is used with the map command
-n - name of symbolic link created in '/dev/mfs', pointing at the network block device created by the map command; default is a combination of master hostname, port and mfs file name
-s - size of the block device, both SI and IEC suffixes can be used; default is the size of the file the block device is mapped to
-r - maps block device as readonly (allows multiple mappings of the same file)
-t - forces the list command to display information in a format ready to use with map (m parameter) or unmap (u parameter) command
mfsbdev start - start nbd daemon with default options (masterhost = mfsmaster, masterport = 9421, linksocket = /dev/mfs/nbdsock, authentication without password)
mfsbdev start -H mfsmaster.my.domain -P 9521 -x /etc/mfs/mastersecret - start nbd daemon that will connect to master mfsmaster.my.domain on port 9521 using password read from file /etc/mfs/mastersecret
mfsbdev stop -l /tmp/mynbdinstance - stop nbd daemon using for communication unix socket /tmp/mynbdinstance
mfsbdev map -f devices/mybdev1.bin -s 2Ti -n mytestvm - add mapping to daemon using for communication default socket (/dev/mfs/nbdsock). Device will be assigned automatically, file devices/mybdev1.bin will be mapped to this device, link '/dev/mfs/mytestvm' to this device will be created and block device will have size of 2TiB.
mfsbdev unmap -n mytestvm - remove mapping that has link named mytestvm (uses link /dev/mfs/mytestvm).
