Manual Reference Pages - SALVAGE.LOCK (5)
salvage.lock - Prevents multiple simultaneous salvage operations on a partition
The salvage.lock file guarantees that only one Salvager (salvager
process) runs at a time on a file server machine (the single process can
fork multiple subprocesses to salvage multiple partitions in parallel). As
the Salvager initializes, it creates the empty (zero-length) file in the
/var/openafs directory and invokes the flock system call on it. It
removes the file when it completes the salvage operation. Because the
Salvager must lock the file to run, only one Salvager can run at a time.
