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.
- --device *ggate device*
Specify ggate device path.

The default for pool-name is “rbd”. If an image name contains a slash character (‘/’), pool-name is required.
