ceph-fuse is a FUSE (File system in USErspace) client for Ceph distributed file system. It will mount a ceph file system (specified via the -m option for described by ceph.conf (see below) at the specific mount point.
The file system can be unmounted with:
fusermount -u mountpoint
or by sending SIGINT to the ceph-fuse process.
Any options not recognized by ceph-fuse will be passed on to libfuse.
Detach from console and daemonize after startup.
Use ceph.conf configuration file instead of the default /etc/ceph/ceph.conf to determine monitor addresses during startup.
Connect to specified monitor (instead of looking through ceph.conf).
Use root_directory as the mounted root, rather than the full Ceph tree.
ceph-fuse is part of Ceph, a massively scalable, open-source, distributed storage system. Please refer to the Ceph documentation at http://ceph.com/docs for more information.
