NAME
       swift-proxy-server - OpenStack Swift proxy server.


SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/swift/swift-proxy-server [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose]


DESCRIPTION
       The  Swift  Proxy  Server is responsible for tying together the rest of
       the Swift architecture.  For each request, it will look up the location
       of  the account, container, or object in the ring and route the request
       accordingly. The public API is also exposed through the Proxy Server. A
       large  number  of  failures  are  also handled in the Proxy Server. For
       example, if a server is unavailable for an object PUT, it will ask  the
       ring  for  a  handoff  server and route there instead. When objects are
       streamed to or from  an  object  server,  they  are  streamed  directly
       through  the proxy server to or from the user the proxy server does not
       spool them.


       The proxy server should be enabled and disabled using the Solaris  Ser-
       vice  Management  Facility,  smf(7).   The  service  FMRI for the proxy
       server is:

         svc:/application/openstack/swift/swift-proxy-server
