rpc.nfsd - NFS server process
/usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd [-p port] nproc
The rpc.nfsd program implements the user level part of the NFS service. The main function-
ality is handled by the nfsd.o kernel module; the user space program merely starts the
specified number of kernel threads.
The rpc.mountd server provides an ancially service needed to satisfy mount requests by NFS
specify a diferent port to listen on for NFS requests. By default, rpc.nfsd will
listen on port 2049.
nproc specify the number of NFS server threads. By default, just one thread is started.
However, for optimum performance several threads should be used. The actual figure
depends on the number of and the work load created by the NFS clients, but a useful
starting point is 8 threads. Effects of modifying that number can be checked using
the nfsstat(8) program.
