Description

System Administration tools                                 VFS_AIO_PTHREAD(8)



NAME
       vfs_aio_pthread - implement async open in Samba vfs using a pthread
       pool

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = aio_pthread

DESCRIPTION
       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The aio_pthread VFS module enables asynchronous opens (for new files)
       with aio_pthread:aio open = yes on platforms which have the pthreads
       API available, support the openat() syscall and support per thread
       credentials (modern Linux kernels).

       The module makes use of the global thread pool which uses the aio max
       threads option.

       This module MUST be listed last in any module stack as the Samba VFS
       open interface is not thread-safe. This module makes direct openat()
       system calls and does NOT call the Samba VFS open interfaces.

EXAMPLES
       Straight forward use:

                   [cooldata]
                path = /data/ice
                vfs objects = aio_pthread
                aio_pthread:aio open = yes

OPTIONS
       aio_pthread:aio open = BOOL
           Try async opens for creating new files.

           The default is 'no'.

VERSION
       This man page is part of version 4.9.3 of the Samba suite.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
