UDP mode

Content Software for File CLI Reference

Part Number

In cases where the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) cannot be used, it is possible to use WekaFS in User Datagram Protocol (UDP) mode through the kernel. Use net=udp in the mount command to set the UDP networking mode, for example:

mount -t wekafs -o num_cores=0 -o net=udp backend-host-0/my_fs /mnt/weka
Note: A client in UDP mode cannot be configured in HA mode. However, the client can still work with a highly available cluster.
Note: Providing multiple IPs in the <mgmt-ip> in UDP mode will utilize their network interfaces for more bandwidth (can be useful in RDMA environments), rather than using only one NIC.
