AFSD(8)			OpenBSD System Manager's Manual		       AFSD(8)

     afsd - AFS cache manager

     afsd [-c string | --conffile=string] [-l string | --log=string]
	  [--debug=string] [-d string | --device=string]
	  [--connected-mode=string] [-n | --no-fork] [-r
	  string | --rxkad-level=string] [-s string | --sysname=string]
	  [--root-volume=string] [--port=number] [-z | --recover]
	  [--cache-dir=string] [-D | --dynroot] [--cpu-usage] [--version]
	  [--help] [device]

     afsd runs on AFS client machines.	It is used to manage the file cache,
     fetch files from AFS servers, handle callbacks and manage the
     authentication information for users.

     In normal cases afsd will be started by enabling it in /etc/rc.conf.

     The options are as follows:

     -c string, --conffile=string
	     Path to configuration file.

     -l string, --log=string
	     Where to write log [stderr|syslog|path] (default: stderr).

	     What to write in the log (default: none).

     -d string, --device=string
	     The XFS device to use (default: /dev/nnpfs0).

	     Initial connected mode [conncted|fetch-only|disconnected].

     -n, --no-fork
	     Don't fork and daemonize.

     -r string, --rxkad-level=string
	     The rxkad level to use [clear|auth|crypt] (default: crypt).

     -s string, --sysname=string
	     Set the sysname of this system.

	     Name of the root volume.

	     Port number to use.

     -z, --recover
	     Don't recover state.

	     Cache directory (default: /var/spool/afs).

     -D, --dynroot
	     Use dynamic root.

	     System and userland cpu-usage times is appended at the end line
	     that is logged.

	     Print version information.

     --help  Print usage information.

     It is highly recommended that the cache filesystem size is increased to
     at least few hundred megabytes, and that it is made as a separate
     filesystem.  The cache size is configured in afsd.conf(5).	 If enough
     memory is available the cache filesystem could be a mfs(8) to improve

     /etc/afs/afsd.conf	  default configuration for afsd
     /etc/afs/CellServDB  database with all known AFS servers
     /etc/afs/ThisCell	  default cell (where we get the root directory)
     /var/spool/afs	  default cache directory

     fs(1), pts(1), afsd.conf(5), AliasDB(5), CellServDB(5), DynRootDB(5),
     SuidCells(5), ThisCell(5), mount_mfs(8), mount_nnpfs(8), rc.conf(8),

     If afsd happens to crash, it's recommended to restart it with the -z
     flag.  Otherwise a corrupted cache can be reused.
