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.
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
