swift-object-auditor(1) Openstack-swift object auditor


swift-object-auditor [CONFIG] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [-o|--once] [-z|--zero_byte_fps]


The object auditor crawls the local object system checking the integrity of 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

Audit only zero byte files at specified files/sec
