     nfsd — remote NFS server

     nfsd [-rut] [-n num_servers]

     Nfsd runs on a server machine to service NFS requests from client
     machines.	At least one nfsd must be running for a machine to operate as
     a server.

     Unless otherwise specified, four servers for UDP transport are started.

     The following options are available:

     -r	     Register the NFS service with portmap(8) without creating any
	     servers.  This option can be used along with the -u or -t options
	     to re-register NFS if the portmap server is restarted.

     -n	     Specifies how many servers to create.

     -t	     Serve TCP NFS clients.

     -u	     Serve UDP NFS clients.

     For example, “nfsd -u -t 6” serves UDP and TCP transports using six dae‐

     A server should run enough daemons to handle the maximum level of concur‐
     rency from its clients, typically four to six.

     Nfsd listens for service requests at the port indicated in the NFS server
     specification; see Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC1094
     and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification.

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

     nfsstat(1), nfssvc(2), mountd(8), portmap(8)

     The nfsd utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
