NAME
       rpc.nfsd - NFS server process

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd [options] nproc

DESCRIPTION
       The rpc.nfsd program implements the user level part of the NFS service.
       The main functionality 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 ancillary service needed to satisfy
       mount requests by NFS clients.

OPTIONS
       -H  or  --host hostname
	      specify a particular hostname (or	 address)  that	 NFS  requests
	      will  be	accepted  on.  By  default,  rpc.nfsd  will accept NFS
	      requests on all known network addresses.	Note that lockd (which
	      performs file locking services for NFS) may still accept request
	      on all known network  addresses.	 This  may  change  in	future
	      releases of the Linux Kernel.

       -p  or  --port port
	      specify  a  diferent  port  to  listen  on  for NFS requests. By
	      default, rpc.nfsd will listen on port 2049.

       -N  or  --no-nfs-version vers
	      This option can be used to request that rpc.nfsd does not	 offer
	      certain  versions	 of  NFS.  The current version of rpc.nfsd can
	      support both NFS version 2,3 and the newer version 4.

       -T  or  --no-tcp
	      Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting TCP connections from clients.

       -U  or  --no-udp
	      Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting UDP connections from clients.

       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.
