NAME
       swift-container-sync - OpenStack Swift container sync


SYNOPSIS
       swift-container-sync [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [-o|--once]


DESCRIPTION
       Swift  has  a feature where all the contents of a container can be mir-
       rored to another container through  background  synchronization.  Swift
       cluster operators configure their cluster to allow/accept sync requests
       to/from other clusters, and the user specifies where to sync their con-
       tainer to along with a secret synchronization key.

       The  swift-container-sync does the job of sending updates to the remote
       container.  This is done by scanning the local  devices  for  container
       databases and checking for x-container-sync-to and x-container-sync-key
       metadata values. If they exist, newer rows since  the  last  sync  will
       trigger PUTs or DELETEs to the other container.
