 NAME
      nfsd, biod - NFS daemons

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/nfsd [ -a ] [ -p protocol ] [ -t device ] [nservers]

      /usr/sbin/biod [nservers]

 DESCRIPTION
      nfsd starts the NFS server daemons that handle client file system
      requests (see nfs(7)).  nservers is the suggested number of file
      system request daemons that will start.  The minimum number of daemons
      will be equal to the number of active processors plus one, or to a
      multiple of the number of active processors greater than or equal to
      nservers plus one.  To obtain the best performance in most cases, set
      nservers to at least sixteen.

      biod starts nservers asynchronous block I/O daemons.  This command is
      used on an NFS client to buffer cache handle read-ahead and write-
      behind.  nservers is a number greater than zero.	For best
      performance, set nservers to at least sixteen.

    Options
      nfsd recognizes the following options:

	   -a	       Start a NFS daemon over all supported connectionless
		       and connection-oriented transports, including udp and
		       tcp.  The NFS_TCP environment variable in
		       /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf configuration file, must
		       have been set to 1 (one) in order to support
		       connect-oriented (tcp) transport.

	   -p protocol Start a NFS daemon over the specified protocol.

	   -t device   Start a NFS daemon for the transport specified by the
		       given device.

	   nservers    nservers is the suggested number of file system
		       request daemons that will start.	 The actual number
		       of daemons started will be one tcp daemon (to support
		       kernel tcp threads) plus the number of udp daemons.
		       The minimum number of udp daemons will be equal to a
		       multiple of the active processors, or to nservers,
		       whichever is greater. To obtain the best performance
		       in most cases, set nservers to at least sixteen.
