Using the command line of the OFS executable

The OFS executable ofs is the main component of OFS. It mounts the filesystem to the specified path and starts the ofs daemon. Normally only the Mount helper calls the OFS binary directly.

OFS is called as follows: # ofs <mountpoint> <shareurl> [<options>]

mountpoint The mountpoint where the user wants to have the filesystem mounted to.
shareurl The URL of the share as passed to the mounthelper. Note: The share is NOT mounted by this program. This is done via the mount-helper. The URL is necessary for example for calculating the share ID.

Options can be any of the following:

short long description
-r –remote Define the path, the remote share is mounted to. By default the remote mountpoint directory is fetched from the configuration file (default is /var/ofs/remote) and the share ID is appended as subdirectory
-b –backing Define the path, the cache for the share is located. By default the backing directory is fetched from the configuration file (default is /var/ofs/backing) and the share ID is appended as subdirectory
-l –listen Network device, the ofs listens for plug/unplug events. Default: Fetched from configuration file
-i –shareid Specify a different unique share ID. By default libofshash is used to calculate the hash from the share URL
-h –help display a help screen and exit

Note: All Directories used by OFS (mountpoint, remote mountpoint, backing path) have to exist before OFS is started!
