TFSD(8)                     System Manager's Manual                    TFSD(8)



NAME
       tfsd - TFS daemon

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/tfsd

DESCRIPTION
       tfsd is the daemon for the Translucent File Service (TFS).  This daemon
       is started by inetd(8C) whenever a TFS request is made.

       tfsd looks up a  file  by  looking  in  the  frontmost  directory  (see
       tfs(4S)).  If the file is not found in this directory, tfsd follows the
       searchlink from the frontmost directory to  the  directory  immediately
       behind it.  tfsd continues to search for the file until one of the fol-
       lowing conditions is met:

              o  The file is found in a directory.

              o  There are no more searchlinks to follow.

              o  A whiteout entry for the file is found.
       The searchlinks and whiteout entries are specified in .tfs_info files.

FILES
       .tfs_info           holds searchlink and whiteout entries
