stratisd - Man Page

Daemon to create and monitor storage pools




stratisd creates, manages, and monitors local storage pools. It is controlled by the user with the stratis command-line tool, or using D-Bus.

Stratis pools created from one or more block devices (blockdevs), and then enables multiple filesystems to be created from the pool.

Typically, Stratisd is not invoked by the user, but runs as a system service.

Global Options


Run with a simulated engine that does not actually perform storage configuration, instead of the default engine.


Specify the log level for log messages. Only messages with severity at or above the level specified will be emitted. If this option is omitted, stratisd respects the RUST_LOG environment variable. Otherwise, stratisd uses the default log level, which is error.
