NFSIOD(8)		  BSD 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	ma-
     chine 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.  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, us-
     ing kldload(2) by way of vfsload(3).  If this fails, or no	NFS KLD	was
     available,	nfsiod exits with an error.

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

SEE ALSO

     portmap(8)

HISTORY
     The nfsiod	utility	first appeared in 4.4BSD.
