Without an option, nfsiod displays the current settings. A client should allow enough number of processes to handle its maximum level of concurrency, typically four to six.
If nfsiod detects that the running kernel does not include NFS support, it will attempt to load a kernel module containing NFS code, using kldload(2). If this fails, or no NFS module was available, nfsiod exits with an error.
The nfsiod utility first appeared in BSD 4.4 .
.Fx 5.0 , the utility no longer starts daemons, but only serves as a vfs loader and sysctl(3) wrapper.
