    Command:

    rpc.nfsd

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd [options] nproc
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The rpc.nfsd program implements the user level part of the NFS service.
           The main functionality is handled by the nfsd kernel module.  The  user
           space  program merely specifies what sort of sockets the kernel service
           should listen on, what NFS versions it should  support,  and  how  many
           kernel threads it should use.
    
           The  rpc.mountd  server provides an ancillary service needed to satisfy
           mount requests by NFS clients.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -d  or  --debug
                  enable logging of debugging messages
    
           -H  or  --host hostname
                  specify a particular hostname (or  address)  that  NFS  requests
                  will  be  accepted  on.  By  default,  rpc.nfsd  will accept NFS
                  requests on all known network addresses.  Note that lockd (which
                  performs file locking services for NFS) may still accept request
                  on all known network  addresses.   This  may  change  in  future
                  releases of the Linux Kernel.
    
           -p  or  --port port
                  specify  a  diferent  port  to  listen  on  for NFS requests. By
                  default, rpc.nfsd will listen on port 2049.
    
           -N  or  --no-nfs-version vers
                  This option can be used to request that rpc.nfsd does not  offer
                  certain  versions  of  NFS.  The current version of rpc.nfsd can
                  support both NFS version 2,3 and the newer version 4.
    
           -s  or  --syslog
                  By default, rpc.nfsd logs error messages (and debug messages, if
                  enabled)  to  stderr.  This option makes rpc.nfsd log these mes-
                  sages to syslog instead. Note  that  errors  encountered  during
                  option  processing  will still be logged to stderr regardless of
                  this option.
    
           -T  or  --no-tcp
                  Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting TCP connections from clients.
    
           -U  or  --no-udp
                  Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting UDP connections from clients.
    
           nproc  specify the number of NFS server threads. By default,  just  one
                  thread  is  started.  However,  for  optimum performance several
                  threads should be used. The actual figure depends on the  number
                  of  and  the  work load created by the NFS clients, but a useful
                  starting point is 8 threads. Effects of  modifying  that  number
