If access to remote files seems unusually slow, enter the following
on the server and look for abnormal (high) execution times for NFS
daemon processes to check that the access time is not being affected
adversely by a runaway daemon. If there is nothing unusual (processes
with excessive CPU time) in the display, and other clients
are getting good response, make sure your biod
daemons are running. At the client, type the following command:
ps -ef | grep biod
Look for biod daemons in the display, then enter the command again. If the biods do not accumulate excessive CPU time, they are probably hung. If they are dead or hung, follow these steps:
The second field contains the process ID number.
where pid is the process ID of the biod daemon.
