NAME
       mkfile - create a file

SYNOPSIS
       mkfile [ -nv ] size[b|k|m|g] filename ...

DESCRIPTION
       mkfile creates one or more files that are suitable for use as NFS-mounted swap areas.  The
       sticky bit is set, and the file is padded with zeroes by default.  Non-root users must set
       the sticky bit using chmod(1).  The default size unit is bytes, but the following suffixes
       may be used to multiply by the given factor:  b	(512),	k  (1024),  m  (1048576),  and	g
       (1073741824).

OPTIONS
       -n     Create  an  empty  filename.   The  size is noted, but disk blocks aren't allocated
	      until data is written to them.

       -v     Verbose.	Report the names and sizes of created files.

WARNING
       If a client's swap file is removed and recreated, it must be re-exported before the client
       will be able to access it.  This action may only be done when the client is not running.

SEE ALSO
       chmod(2), stat(2), exportfs(8), sticky(8)
