                <para><command>gvfsd</command> is the main daemon for
                the gvfs virtual filesystem. It provides the
                <emphasis>org.gtk.vfs.Daemon</emphasis> name on the
                session bus. gvfsd is autostarted by GIO clients if it
                is not running.</para>

                <para>The primary task of <command>gvfsd</command> is to
                act as a mount tracker/manager. It spawns new backends
                when requested and keeps track of their lifecycle,
                maintaining a list of active mounts and creates direct
                connections to them.</para>

                <para>Since gvfs backends are running as children of the
                gvfsd process, it is possible to start gvfsd in
                a terminal and set environment variables to get
                debug output from individual backends.</para>

                <para><command>gvfsd</command> also starts the
                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>gvfsd-fuse</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>, and provides it the mount point
                where the fuse file system should be mounted.</para>
