     rpc.lockd — NFS file locking daemon

     rpc.lockd [-d debug_level] [-g grace period] [-h bindip] [-p port]

     The rpc.lockd utility provides monitored and unmonitored file and record
     locking services in an NFS environment.  To monitor the status of hosts
     requesting locks, the locking daemon typically operates in conjunction
     with rpc.statd(8).

     Options and operands available for rpc.lockd:

     -d	     The -d option causes debugging information to be written to sys‐
	     log, recording all RPC transactions to the daemon.	 These mes‐
	     sages are logged with level LOG_DEBUG and facility LOG_DAEMON.
	     Specifying a debug_level of 1 results in the generation of one
	     log line per protocol operation.  Higher debug levels can be
	     specified, causing display of operation arguments and internal
	     operations of the daemon.

     -g	     The -g option allow to specify the grace period, in seconds.
	     During the grace period rpc.lockd only accepts requests from
	     hosts which are reinitialising locks which existed before the
	     server restart.  Default is 30 seconds.

     -h bindip
	     Specify specific IP addresses to bind to.	This option may be
	     specified multiple times.	If no -h option is specified,
	     rpc.lockd will bind to INADDR_ANY.	 Note that when specifying IP
	     addresses with -h, rpc.lockd will automatically add and
	     if IPv6 is enabled, ::1 to the list.

     -p	     The -p option allow to force the daemon to bind to the specified
	     port, for both AF_INET and AF_INET6 address families.

     Error conditions are logged to syslog, irrespective of the debug level,
     using log level LOG_ERR and facility LOG_DAEMON.

     The rpc.lockd utility must NOT be invoked by inetd(8) because the proto‐
     col assumes that the daemon will run from system start time.  Instead, it
     should be configured in rc.conf(5) to run at system startup.

     A version of rpc.lockd appeared in SunOS 4.
