pvfs2-cp – copy files to and from OrangeFS volumes

Synopsis

pvfs2-cp [-s strip_size] [-n num_datafiles] [-b buffer_size_in_bytes] [-tv] src_file dst_file

Description

The pvfs2-cp utility copies the file src_file to dst_file where the files may either be on OrangeFS volumes or local files.  When operating on OrangeFS volumes it works through the OrangeFS library and not through the kernel interface.

The options are as follows:

-s

Specify a strip size to use when creating dst_file. This only applies to OrangeFS volumes.

-n

Specify a number of datafiles to use when creating dst_file. This only applies to OrangeFS volumes.

-b

Use an intermediate buffer of buffer_size bytes when copying the file.

-t

Report some timing information.

-v

Print version number and exit.

Environment

PVFS2_DEBUGFILE

If set to the path of a local file, redirect debug output to it.

PVFS2_DEBUGMASK

Set the OrangeFS debug mask.  Possible masks are documented in pvfs2-set-debugmask(1).

PVFS2TAB_FILE

If set, the full pathname for an alternate pvfs2tab file

Files

/etc/pvfs2tab

Examples

Copy the file /etc/motd to /mnt/bar. If /mnt is an OrangeFS volume, this will copy the file into OrangeFS.

pvfs2-cp /etc/motd /mnt/bar

Caveats

When dst_file is a directory the utility does not work.  In this respect it is different than the cp(1) utility.
