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

NAME
     nfsiod -- local NFS asynchronous I/O server

SYNOPSIS
     nfsiod [-n	num_servers]

DESCRIPTION
     The nfsiod	utility	is a kernel process which 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.

     This program controls the maximum number of processes that	the kernel
     runs.

     The options are as	follows:

     -n	     Specify how many servers are permitted 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(2).	If this	fails, or no NFS KLD was available, nfsiod
     exits with	an error.

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

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

HISTORY
     The nfsiod	utility	first appeared in 4.4BSD.

FreeBSD	9.3		      September	22, 1994		   FreeBSD 9.3
