unsigned long tcp_num );
Specifies a UDP socket bound to port 2049. Specifies the
number of UDP NFS server threads to start (in the low 32
bits) and 950410 (in the high 32 bits). Specifies a TCP
socket bound to port 2049 after a call to listen(2).
Specifies the number of TCP NFS server threads to start.
The use of the nfssvc() function is not supported in customer
applications, and the interface is subject to change
without notice. It is intended for use solely by nfsd(8).
The nfssvc() function starts NFS server kernel threads and
provides TCP connection support. If the value of the upper
32 bits of udp_num is not 950410, TCP threads are not
The nfssvc() function has no successful return. In fact,
it frees the text and data segments associated with the
calling program so there is nothing to return to. When
interrupted by a KILL signal, the server threads are terminated
and the process exits. If nfssvc() encounters
errors, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the
If the nfssvc() function fails, errno may be set to one of
the following values: Another process is executing nfssvc.
An invalid file descriptor has been passed to the nfssvc()
function. More than 128 server and netisr threads were
requested. The caller is not the superuser.
