Change number of NFSD deamons

It is not unusual to have a few thousands nfsd deamons on an AIX machine. Is this intentional? Most likely it is not. Look at the last line of the following image. I remember this number on hosts with AIX 4.1. Apparently its is harmless, still its is visually annoying.

too many nfsd daemons

How to change it?

MarcoPolo:/root> stopsrc -g nfs
MarcoPolo:/root> chssys -s nfsd -a 6

The last line shows, that I want 6 nfsd daemons. It is time to re-start NFS.

MarcoPolo:/root> startsrc -g nfs

The End
