     KFS(4)                                                     KFS(4)

          kfs - disk file system

          disk/kfs [-rc] [-b n] [-f file] [-n name] [-s]

          Kfs is a local user-level file server for a Plan 9 terminal
          with a disk.  Kfs begins by checking the file system for
          consistency, rebuilding the free list, and placing a file
          descriptor in /srv/service, where service is the service
          name (default kfs). If the file system is inconsistent, the
          user is asked for permission to ream (q.v.)  the disk.  The
          file system is not checked if it is reamed.

          The options are

          b n  If the file system is reamed, use n byte blocks.
               Larger blocks make the file system faster and less
               space efficient.  1024 and 4096 are good choices.  N
               must be a multiple of 512.

          c    Do not check the file system.

          f file
               Use file as the block storage file.  The default is

          n name
               Use as the name of the service.

          r    Ream the file system, erasing all of the old data and
               adding all blocks to the free list.

          s    Post file descriptor zero in /srv/service and read and
               write protocol messages on file descriptor one.

          % kfs -rb4096 -nlocal
          % mount -c /srv/kfs.local /n/kfs

          Create a file system with service name kfs.local and mount
          it on /n/kfs.

                Default file holding blocks.

     KFS(4)                                                     KFS(4)

          This file system is known to be unreliable and shouldn't be
          depended on.
