rbd-ggate – map rbd images via FreeBSD GEOM Gate¶
rbd-ggate is a client for RADOS block device (rbd) images. It will map a rbd image to a ggate (FreeBSD GEOM Gate class) device, allowing access it as regular local block device.
Spawn a process responsible for the creation of ggate device and forwarding I/O requests between the GEOM Gate kernel subsystem and RADOS.
Destroy ggate device and terminate the process responsible for it.
List mapped ggate devices.
Specify ggate device path.
Forbid writes by other clients.
Image and snap specs¶
The default for pool-name is “rbd”. If an image name contains a slash character (‘/’), pool-name is required.
rbd-ggate 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.
