NFSIOD(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     NFSIOD(8)

NAME
     nfsiod -- local NFS asynchronous I/O server

SYNOPSIS
     nfsiod [-n	num_servers]

DESCRIPTION
     Nfsiod runs on an NFS client machine to service asynchronous I/O requests
     to	its server.  It	improves performance but is not	required for correct
     operation.

     Unless otherwise specified, a single server is started.

     The options are as	follows:

     -n	     Specify how many servers are to be	started.

     A client should run enough	daemons	to handle its maximum level of concur-
     rency, typically four to six.

     If	nfsiod detects that the	running	kernel does not	include	NFS support,
     it	will attempt to	load a loadable	kernel module containing NFS code,
     using kldload(8) by way of	vfsload(3).  If	this fails, or no NFS KLD was
     available,	The nfsiod utility exits with an error.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The nfsiod	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     nfsstat(1), nfssvc(2), kldload(8),	mountd(8), nfsd(8), portmap(8)

HISTORY
     The nfsiod	utility	first appeared in 4.4BSD.

FreeBSD	9.3		      September	22, 1994		   FreeBSD 9.3
