Linux / Unix Command: rpc.lockd
Command Library


rpc.lockd - start kernel lockd process  




The rpc.lockd program starts the NFS lock manager (NLM) on kernels that don't start it automatically. However, since most kernels do start it automatically, rpc.lockd. is usually not required. Even so, running it anyway is harmless.  


rpc.statd(8), rpc.nfsd(8)  

Important: Use the man command (% man) to see how a command is used on your particular computer.
