NFSIOD(8)                 BSD System Manager's Manual                NFSIOD(8)

NAME
     nfsiod - local NFS asynchronous I/O server

SYNOPSIS
     nfsiod [-n num_servers]

DESCRIPTION
     Nfsiod runs on an NFS client machine to service asynchronous I/O requests
     to its server.  It improves performance but is not required for correct
     operation.

     Unless otherwise specified, a single server is started.

     The options are as follows:

     -n      Specify how many servers are to be started.

     A client should run enough daemons to handle its maximum level of concur-
     rency, typically four to six.

     The nfsiod utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
