rbd-fuse - Man Page

expose rbd images as files


rbd-fuse [ -p pool ] [-c conffile] mountpoint [ fuse options ]


rbd-fuse is not recommended for any production or high performance workloads.


rbd-fuse is a FUSE ("Filesystem in USErspace") client for RADOS block device (rbd) images.  Given a pool containing rbd images, it will mount a userspace file system allowing access to those images as regular files at mountpoint.

The file system can be unmounted with:

fusermount -u mountpoint

or by sending SIGINT to the rbd-fuse process.


Any options not recognized by rbd-fuse will be passed on to libfuse.

-c ceph.conf

Use ceph.conf configuration file instead of the default /etc/ceph/ceph.conf to determine monitor addresses during startup.

-p pool

Use pool as the pool to search for rbd images.  Default is rbd.


rbd-fuse is part of Ceph, a massively scalable, open-source, distributed storage system. Please refer to the Ceph documentation at https://docs.ceph.com for more information.
