NAME

rpc.lockd - start kernel lockd process  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/rpc.lockd  

DESCRIPTION

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.  

SEE ALSO

rpc.statd(8), rpc.nfsd(8)  

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