NFS Version 3 in Linux
- Student: Calathur G. Harish Kaushik 7/2000, first job at Wind River,
- Purpose: Implement the NFS Version 3 protocol in Linux
Modify open-source NFS Version 2 client and server code to handle NFS Version 3
protocol. The result is application-layer servers: nfsd and mountd, an
enhanced mount program, and a client integrated into the Linux VFS layer.
The software is about 90% functional.
- What the student learned
- NFS Version 3 protocol
- Linux VFS
- Sun RPC and XDR (XDR had to be enhanced to handle 64-bit quantities)
- Technical writing skills in preparing and packaging
the resulting code.
