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 authentica-
     tion 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/xfs0).

             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_xfs(8), rc.conf(8), vos(8)

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