Can you do NON-blocking reads with hard NFS mounts

Can you do NON-blocking reads with hard NFS mounts

Post by James W. Barbo » Wed, 10 Aug 1994 02:10:11



Hi,

We've got several NFS hard mounts, in an attempt to
guarentee no data loss when doing NFS writes.

However, we'd like to be able to do non-blocking reads on these files,
to prevent processes from* when a server goes down.

Does anyone have any ideas how to go about this?

Thanks,

1. How to do non-blocking reads on NFS hard mounts

Hi,

We've got several NFS mounts that are mounted hard, an attempt to
guarentee data integrity.

However, we need to do non-blocking reads on files in an NFS hard
mounted directory so that we can determine if the NFS server is still serving .

Does anyone have any ideas how to go about this?

Thanks,
