    Name        : nbdkit
    Product     : Fedora 30
    Version     : 1.12.7
    Release     : 1.fc30
    URL         : https://github.com/libguestfs/nbdkit
    Summary     : NBD server
    Description :
    NBD is a protocol for accessing block devices (hard disks and
    disk-like things) over the network.
    
    nbdkit is a toolkit for creating NBD servers.
    
    The key features are:
    
    * Multithreaded NBD server written in C with good performance.
    
    * Minimal dependencies for the basic server.
    
    * Liberal license (BSD) allows nbdkit to be linked to proprietary
      libraries or included in proprietary code.
    
    * Well-documented, simple plugin API with a stable ABI guarantee.
      Lets you to export "unconventional" block devices easily.
    
    * You can write plugins in C or many other languages.
    
    * Filters can be stacked in front of plugins to transform the output.
    
    In Fedora, 'nbdkit' is a meta-package which pulls in the core server
    and a useful subset of plugins and filters.
    
    If you want just the server, install 'nbdkit-server'.
    
    To develop plugins, install the 'nbdkit-devel' package and start by
    reading the nbdkit(1) and nbdkit-plugin(3) manual pages.
