RPC.LOCKD(8)            NetBSD System Manager's Manual            RPC.LOCKD(8)


NAME
rpc.lockd -- NFS file locking daemon
SYNOPSIS
rpc.lockd [-46] [-d debug_level] [-g grace_period]
DESCRIPTION
The rpc.lockd daemon provides monitored and unmonitored file and record locking services in an NFS environment. To monitor the status of hosts requesting locks, the locking daemon typically operates in conjunction with rpc.statd(8). Options and operands available for rpc.lockd: -4 Listen for requests using IPv4. Do not listen using IPv6 unless the -6 option is also specified. By default, rpc.lockd listens for requests using both IPv4 and IPv6 if available. -6 Listen for requests using IPv6. It is an error if IPv6 is not available. -d debug_level Cause debugging information to be written to syslog, recording all RPC transactions to the daemon. These messages are logged with level LOG_DEBUG and facility LOG_DAEMON. Specifying a debug_level of 1 results in the generation of one log line per protocol operation. Higher debug levels can be specified, causing display of operation arguments and internal operations of the daemon. -g grace_period Set the grace period (in seconds) to grace_period. During the grace period rpc.lockd only accepts requests from hosts which are reinitialising locks which existed before the server restarted. Default is 30 seconds. Error conditions are logged to syslog, irrespective of the debug level, using log level LOG_ERR and facility LOG_DAEMON. The rpc.lockd daemon must NOT be invoked by inetd(8) because the protocol assumes that the daemon will run from system start time. Instead, it should be configured in rc.conf(5) to run at system startup.

SEE ALSO

STANDARDS
The implementation is based on the specification in X/Open CAE Specifica- tion C218, "Protocols for X/Open PC Interworking: XNFS, Issue 4", ISBN 1 872630 66 9.
HISTORY
A version of rpc.lockd appeared in SunOS 4.
BUGS
The current implementation provides only the server side of the protocol (i.e., clients running other OS types can establish locks on a NetBSD fileserver, but there is currently no means for a NetBSD client to estab- lish locks). The current implementation serialises lock requests that could be shared. NetBSD 9.99 August 11, 2012 NetBSD 9.99
