nfs client and lockd

From: Brodmann, Andreas (

The kernel version 2.2.10 as well as 2.4.0-test5
both have a process running named "(lockd)" (e.g. using ps xa)

kernel version 2.2.16 does not seem to have this process
(it is not a normal daemon but part of the kernel).

the 2.2.16 kernel which does not have this process shows
nfs anomalies!


apache can't write it's logs on nfs when using the 2.2.16 kernel,
it won't report any errors. An "ls -al" command when issued for
the first time, shows the normal size of the log file. When issuing
the command a second time, it shows a file size of 0 bytes.

the same system with a 2.2.10 kernel or a 2.4.0-test5 kernel
works fine. The only difference I could find was the (lockd) that
was missing.

Will this "process" be reimplemented again, or is there some
replacement for this?

Kind regards,
