sxvol-filter — display information about filters


sxvol filter <Options>...


Filters are special plug-ins, which run locally and perform specific operations when the client tools access the data on SX clusters. A use case example is data encryption, which is performed before the data gets uploaded to the cluster and after it gets downloaded to the local computer. This command lists filters available in the system and their details.
