       vacfs - a Venti-based file system

       vacfs [ -dips ] [ -c cachesize ] [ -h host ] [ -m mtpt ] [ -S srvname ]

       Vacfs interprets the file system created by vac(1) so that  it  can  be
       mounted	into a Plan 9 file hierarchy.  The data for the file system is
       stored on venti(8) with a root fingerprint specified in vacfile.	 Vacfs
       is  currently  rather  limited:	access	is  read-only, clients are not
       authenticated, and groups are assumed to contain a single  member  with
       the same name.  These restrictions should eventually be removed.

       Options to vacfs are:

       -c cachesize
	      The number of file system blocks to cache in memory. The default
	      is 1000 blocks.

       -d     Print debugging information to standard error.

       -h host
	      The network address of the Venti server.	The default  is	 taken
	      from  the environment variable venti.  If this variable does not
	      exist, then the default is the metaname  $venti,	which  can  be
	      configured via ndb(6).

       -i     Use  file	 descriptors  0	 and 1 as the 9P communication channel
	      rather than create a pipe.

       -m mtpt
	      The location to mount the file system. The default is /n/vac.

       -p     Disables permission checking.

       -s     Post the 9P channel in /srv/vacfs rather	than  mounting	it  on

       -S srvname
	      Post  the	 9P channel in /srv/srvname rather than mounting it on
