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.

     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.

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.

BSD			      September	22, 1994			   BSD
