The best you can do currently is run tcpdump/wireshark and watch the remote file operations as they happen... NFS doesn't access files by filename, but by NFS filehandle (basically device+inode number), so a remote client first looks up the filename to get the filehandle, and all accesses are done via the filehandle at that point. Theoretically, one could write a dtrace script that watches calls to nfs_namei, nfsrv_read, and nfsrv_write, and then matches read/write ops with the filenames that were looked up beforehand. -- Dan Nelson dnel...@allantgroup.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
