HAMMER2 Gets A Man Page

The HAMMER2 file-system has been slow to mature since being announced three years ago, but now at least there's a man page for HAMMER2.

When HAMMER2 was announced in 2012, it was thought that HAMMER2 would be ready in 2013 but now well into 2015 it's not yet the default on DragonFlyBSD. At least though there's a man page for better documenting the features and functionality... Well, planned features at least.

Matthew Dillon on Friday committed the HAMMER2 man page, but as he describes in the commit, not all of the features described in the man page have actually been implemented in this open-source file-system. "Note that a multitude of features being described have not yet been implemented."

If you're curious though and want to learn more about the planned technicals of DragonFlyBSD's HAMMER2 successor to the original HAMMMER FS, you can view the man page.
