Synopsis

nfsdclnts [-h] [-t type] [--clientinfo] [--hostname] [-q]

Description

The nfsdclnts(8) command parses the content present in /proc/fs/nfsd/clients/ directories. nfsdclnts(8) displays files which are open, locked, delegated by the nfs-client. It also prints useful client information such as hostname, clientID, NFS version mounted by the nfs-client.

Options

-t, --type=TYPE

Specify the type of file to be displayed. Takes only one TYPE at a time.

open, lock, deleg, layout, or all

open: displays the open files by nfs-client(s).

lock: displays the files locked by nfs-client(s).

layout: displays the files for which layout is given.

deleg: displays delegated files information and delegation type.

all: prints all the above type.

--clientinfo

displays various nfs-client info fields such as version of nfs mounted at nfs-client and clientID.

--hostname

Print hostname of nfs-client instead of ip-address.

-q, --quiet

-v, --verbose

-f, --file

Instead of processing all client directories under /proc/fs/nfsd/clients, one can provide a specific states file to process. One should make sure that info file resides in the same directory as states file. If the info file is not valid or present the fields would be marked as "N/A".
