proplistd - Services remote NFS compatible property list
The proplistd daemon services sideband protocol requests
from NFS clients for property list operations. Requests
may be to get, set, and or delete the property list associated
with an NFS served file system object.
The proplistd is a multi-threaded ONC/RPC server. The
numthreads argument specifies the number of preallocated
service threads. The recommended number of service threads
is 1/4th the number of nfsd threads.
The object against which the proplist() operation is performed
must be exported with appropriate access: read
access for getproplist() operations, and write access for
setproplist() and delproplist() operations.
The proplistd daemon is typically started by nfssetup.
See the acl(4) reference page for a discussion of the nfsflatten-mode.
