NAME

  proplistd - Services remote NFS compatible property list requests

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/proplistd numthreads

DESCRIPTION

  The proplistd	daemon services	sideband protocol requests from	NFS clients
  for property list operations.	Requests may be	to get,	set, and or delete
  the property list associated with an NFS served file system object.

  The proplistd	is a multi-threaded ONC/RPC server.  The numthreads argument
  specifies the	number of preallocated service threads.	The recommended
  number of service threads is 1/4th the number	of nfsd	threads.

  The object against which the proplist() operation is performed must be
  exported with	appropriate access: read access	for getproplist() operations,
  and write access for setproplist() and delproplist() operations.

  The proplistd	daemon is typically started by nfssetup.

  See the acl(4) reference page	for a discussion of the	nfs-flatten-mode.
