kernel module; the user space program merely starts the specified
number of kernel threads.
server provides an ancially service needed to satisfy mount requests
by NFS clients.
- -p port
specify a diferent port to listen on for NFS requests. By default,
will listen on port 2049.
specify the number of NFS server threads. By default, just one
thread is started. However, for optimum performance several threads
should be used. The actual figure depends on the number of and the work

8 threads. Effects of modifying that number can be checked using
Olaf Kirch, Bill Hawes, H. J. Lu, G. Allan Morris III,
and a host of others.
