NILFS includes the /etc/nilfs_cleanerd.conf file to provide configuration settings to the cleanup daemon. Details can be viewed via man 8 nilfs_cleanerd.
The nilfs package contains over a dozen management utilities. Each comes with its own man page. Upstream also hosts the pages on the project site.
