swift-container-auditor(1) Openstack-swift container auditor


swift-container-auditor [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [-o|--once]


The container auditor crawls the local container system checking the integrity of container objects. If corruption is found (in the case of bit rot, for example), the file is quarantined, and replication will replace the bad file from another replica.

The options are as follows:

log to console
only run one pass of daemon
