mkfile - create a file
mkfile [ -nv ] size[b|k|m|g] filename ...
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
-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.
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.
