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 run on an NFS	client machine
     to	service	asynchronous I/O requests to its server.  It improves perfor-
     mance 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, us-
     ing kldload(2).  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
     nfsstat(1), kldload(2), nfssvc(2),	mountd(8), nfsd(8), rpcbind(8)

HISTORY
     The nfsiod	utility	first appeared in 4.4BSD.
