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
     concurrency, 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 11.0-PRERELEASE       September 22, 1994       FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE
