A network filesystem that can read() count of bytes from file ?


Is there a network mount that supports reading a specified number of bytes from a file ?

Or as in torrents, be able to recheck the data from the network share mounted ?

all of them satisfy that requirement. how much you read is at the application level, the file system just houses the file, data, and metadata.

Well I find that for example via WebDAV applications like torrent clients won't check existing files.

I assume it has something to do with that ?

Need data

You have mentioned two application level 'standards': one for web file functions, the other a distributed file transfer protocol, and neither has anything directly to do with file systems.

This gives me the impression that BOTH of us are confused about the point of the real question.

Can you expound a bit, perhaps to clarify things?

Just a network mounted drive solution that actually is compatible with most applications out there (except for obvious stuff like partition tools etc.).

So it is not directly file system on the server, and not the normal kind of mounted network file system that is common, it is remote/network exported file system for granular ad-hoc access?

Not exactly my field. I crank CIFS, NFS, and SSHFS solutions all the time, but those are at the OS levels and you are talking web/application level. CIFS, NFS, and SSHFS make the shared storage look as much as possible like local disk so that all of the expected operations work. To get the same granularity over web would be terribly inefficient for some common cases, so I am not certain anyone has focused on such a solution.

Of this I am sure, I do not have that solution in my toolkit. Please, someone else chime in if you do.

I have to wonder if the Google API used for Google Drive compatibility would be appropriate for developing such a solution.
