NAME
       swift-container-updater - OpenStack Swift container updater


SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/swift/swift-container-updater  [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--ver-
       bose] [-o|--once]


DESCRIPTION
       The container updater is responsible for updating container information
       in the account database.  It will walk the container path in the system
       looking for container DBs and sending updates to the account server  as
       needed as it goes along.

       There  are times when account data can not be immediately updated. This
       usually occurs during failure scenarios or periods of high  load.  This
       is  where  an  eventual  consistency window will most likely come in to
       play.

       In practice, the consistency window is only as large as  the  frequency
       at  which  the  updater  runs  and may not even be noticed as the proxy
       server will route listing requests to the first  account  server  which
       responds.  The  server under load may not be the one that serves subse-
       quent listing requests - one of the other two replicas may  handle  the
       listing.

       The options are as follows:

           -v
           --verbose
               log to console
           -o
           --once
               only run one pass of daemon


       The  container updater should be enabled and disabled using the Solaris
       Service Management Facility, smf(7).  The service  FMRI  for  the  con-
       tainer updater is:

         svc:/application/openstack/swift/swift-container-updater
