rbd-fuse – expose rbd images as files


rbd-fuse [ -p pool ] [-c conffile] mountpoint [ fuse options ]


rbd-fuse is a FUSE (File system in USErspace) client for RADOS block device (rbd) images. Given a pool containing rbd images, it will mount a userspace filesystem allowing access to those images as regular files at mountpoint.

The file system can be unmounted with:

fusermount -u mountpoint

or by sending SIGINT to the rbd-fuse process.


Any options not recognized by rbd-fuse will be passed on to libfuse.

-c ceph.conf

Use ceph.conf configuration file instead of the default /etc/ceph/ceph.conf to determine monitor addresses during startup.

-p pool

Use pool as the pool to search for rbd images. Default is rbd.


rbd-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.
