Description

PVFS2 is a parallel virtual file system for clusters.  PVFS  harnesses commodity storage and network technology to provide concurrent access to data that is distributed across a (potentially large) collection of servers.

This man page documents general features of the PVFS2 system.  See the man pages for individual programs for more specific information.

Files

/etc/pvfs2tab

This file maps absolute pathnames to pvfs2 servers and volumes.  If the PVFS2TAB_FILE environment variable is set, programs will use the file at that location instead.  See pvfs2tab(5) for more information.

Environment
