rpc.nfsd(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   rpc.nfsd(8)

NAME
       rpc.nfsd	- NFS server process

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd [-p port] nproc

DESCRIPTION
       The rpc.nfsd program implements the user	level part of the NFS service.
       The main	functionality is handled by the	nfsd.o kernel module; the user
       space program merely starts the specified number	of kernel threads.

       The  rpc.mountd	server	provides an ancially service needed to satisfy
       mount requests by NFS clients.

OPTIONS
       -p port
	      specify a	diferent port to listen	on for NFS  requests.  By  de-
	      fault, rpc.nfsd will listen on port 2049.

       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
	      can be checked using the nfsstat(8) program.

SEE ALSO
       rpc.mountd(8), exportfs(8), rpc.rquotad(8), nfsstat(8).
