NFSSVC(2)                     System Calls Manual                    NFSSVC(2)



NAME
       nfssvc, async_daemon - NFS daemons

SYNOPSIS
       nfssvc (sock)
       int sock;

       async_daemon()

DESCRIPTION
       nfssvc()  starts  an  NFS  daemon listening on socket sock.  The socket
       must be AF_INET, and SOCK_DGRAM (protocol  UDP/IP).   The  system  call
       will return only if the socket is invalid.

       async_daemon()  implements the NFS daemon that handles asynchronous I/O
       for an NFS client.  This system call never returns.

       Both system calls result in kernel-only processes with user memory dis-
       carded.

SEE ALSO
       mountd(8C)

BUGS
       There  should  be  a  way  to  dynamically create kernel-only processes
       instead of having to make system calls from userland to simulate this.
