vacfs - a Venti-based file system

SYNOPSIS

vacfs [ -dip ] [ -h host ] [ -m mtpt ] [ -s srvname ] [ -M mem ] vacfile

DESCRIPTION

Vacfs interprets the file system created by vac(1) so that it can be mounted into a Plan 9 file hierarchy. The data for the file system is stored on a Venti server with a root fingerprint specified in vacfile. Vacfs is currently rather limited: access is read-only, clients are not authenticated, and groups are assumed to contain a single member with the same name. These restrictions should eventually be removed.

Options to vacfs are:
-d Print debugging information to standard error.
-hhost
  The network address of the Venti server. The default is taken from the environment variable venti. If this variable does not exist, then the default is the metaname $venti.
-i Use file descriptors 0 and 1 as the 9P communication channel rather than create a pipe.
-mmtpt
  The location to mount the file system. The default is not to mount.
-p Disables permission checking.
-s The name of the 9P service to post. The default is vacfs.name, where name is vacfile without any directory name or extension.
-Mmem
  The amount of memory, in bytes, allocated to the block cache. The default is 16M.
