feature/glusterfind: A tool to find incremental changes
Documentation is available in patch: A tool which helps to get list of modified files or list of all files in GlusterFS Volume using Changelog or find command. Usage ===== glusterfind --help Create: ------- glusterfind create --help The tool creates status file $GLUSTERD_WORKDIR/SESSION/VOLUME/status and records current timestamp to initiate the session. This timestamp will be used as start time for next runs. As part of create also generates ssh key and distributes to all peers. and enables build.pgfid and changelog using volume set command. Pre: ---- glusterfind pre --help This command is used to generate the list of files modified after session creation time or after last run. To get list of all files/dirs in Volume, run pre command with `--full` argument. The tool gets all nodes details using gluster volume info and runs node agent for each brick in respective nodes via ssh command. Once these node agents generate the output file, tool copies to local using scp. Merges all the output files to generate the final output file. Post: ----- glusterfind post --help After consuming the list, this sub command is called to update the session time based on pre command status file. List: ----- glusterfind list --help To view all the sessions Delete: ------- glusterfind delete --help Delete session. Known Issues ------------ 1. Deleted files will not get listed, since we can't convert GFID to Path if file/dir is deleted. 2. Only new name will get listed if Renamed. 3. All hardlinks will get listed.
