Drop_IO_Errors(bool, default false)

For NFSv3, whether to drop rather than reply to requests yielding I/O errors. It results in client retry.

Whether to collect perfomance statistics. By default the perfomance counting is enabled. Enable_NFS_Stats can be enabled or disabled dynamically via ganesha_stats.

Enable_Fast_Stats(bool, default false)

Whether to use fast stats. If enabled this will skip statistics counters collection for per client and per export.

Whether to count and collect FSAL specific performance statistics. Enable_FSAL_Stats can be enabled or disabled dynamically via ganesha_stats

Enable_FULLV3_Stats(bool, default false)

Whether to count and collect "detailed statistics" for NFSv3. Enable_FULLV3_Stats can be enabled or disabled dynamically via ganesha_stats.

Enable_FULLV4_Stats(bool, default false)

Whether to count and collect "detailed statistics" for NFSv4. Enable_FULLV4_Stats can be enabled or disabled dynamically via ganesha_stats.

Enable_CLNT_AllOps_Stats(bool, default false)

Whether to count and collect statistics for all NFS operations requested by NFS clients. Enable_CLNT_AllOps_Stats can be enabled or disabled dynamically via ganesha_stats.
