7.1.1 NFS V3




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

7.1.1 NFS V3

    NFS V3 supports 64-bit files and write caching.

The first implementation was from Digital with DEC OSF/1 V3.0 for
Alpha AXP. Silicon Graphics supports it on IRIX 5.3. Cray will support
it on UNICOS 9. I don't know about other vendors but I have heard
rumours that the releases coming in the second half of 1995 will
support it.

Further information on NFS V3 can be found from
gatekeeper.dec.com:pub/standards/nfs/NFS3.spec.ps.Z (ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/standards/nfs/NFS3.spec.ps.Z)

(jmaki@csc.fi, 95/1/22)

Solaris 2.5, available Nov. 95, is reported to have V3 support.
Network Appliances have it as of 3.0, Sept. 95. (guy@netapp.com (Guy
