ceph-fuse is a FUSE (“Filesystem in USErspace”) client for Ceph distributed file system. It will mount a ceph file system specified via the -m option or described by ceph.conf (see below) at the specific mount point. See Mount CephFS using FUSE for detailed information.

Disable multi-threaded operation.
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.
