[2007/03/16] GfarmFS-FUSE version 2.0
Add -N option for auto replication.

1. GfarmFS-FUSE

GfarmFS-FUSE enables you to mount a Gfarm filesystem in userspace via FUSE mechanism.

GfarmFS-FUSE does not require the glibc-not-hidden package and LD_PRELOAD setting for existing binary applications to access a Gfarm filesystem. It resolves limitation of redirection in overwriting or appending an existing remote file via the Gfarm syscall hook library. It also allows you to use a symbolic link and a hardlink. These operations are emulated in GfarmFS-FUSE.

3. Installation

To build GfarmFS-FUSE, development packages of Gfarm version 1.2 (or later) and FUSE version 2.2 (or later) are required. (Gfarm version 1.4 or later and FUSE version 2.6.3 or later are recommended.)

Installation steps of GfarmFS-FUSE:

4. Mount

To mount a Gfarm file system, run these commands.

    $ mkdir /tmp/fuse
    $ gfarmfs -sl /tmp/fuse

The -s and -l options enable symbolic link and hardlink emulations, respectively. For details, refer to README.
