Introduction to administering Local Filesystems and Filesystem Administration
Filesystems play a pivotal role in your Linux system.
Their configuration, performance, and security affect your data's availability and reliability.
Properly configured and tuned, your Linux filesystem will provide users with highly available and secure data for years to come.
However, if not configured correctly, your filesystems could lose data, become a target of network hackers, or simply not perform optimally.
In this module, you will configure and optimize your Linux filesystems using the
You will also weigh the advantages of using an automounter to configure local filesystems against the inherent security risks involved in automounting.
Finally, you will learn about tools that monitor and resolve filesystem problems.
Automounter: An automounter is a program that automatically mounts filesystems when those filesystems are first accessed.
After completing this module you will be able to
mke2fs command to adjust the filesystem's block size
debugfs to optimize and configure the
Discuss the use of the automounter
Set up the automounter
Use rdist to synchronize files between the local host and a remote machine
Use rsync to synchronize files between the local host and a remote machine
List the commands for monitoring filesystem usage
Resolve filesystem problems
The next lesson discusses optimizing and configuring the
