swift-container-server(1) Openstack-swift container server


swift-container-server [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose]


The Container Server's primary job is to handle listings of objects. It doesn't know where those objects are, just what objects are in a specific container. The listings are stored as sqlite database files, and replicated across the cluster similar to how objects are. Statistics are also tracked that include the total number of objects, and total storage usage for that container.
