uvfs(4FS)

Name

uvfs - UVFS file system

Description

UVFS is a pseudo file system that sends file system requests such as read and write system calls to user-level file system daemons.

Solaris provides an implementation of libfuse that is layered upon libuvfs.

An example of a user-level file system is one written to the libfuse API, such as the Oracle database file system (dbfs).

If a user-level file system is mounted by using the mount utility, the following SMF service is created automatically:

svc:/system/filesystem/uvfs-server

Each separate user-level file system mount creates a separate SMF service instance under the uvfs-server service. The instance is named: fsid-hex_value_of _fsid. If you have multiple uvfs mounts, you would see multiple lines of output from the following command:

# svcs uvfs-server
