If enabled, the operations of a NFS server can be stored in a log. This is provided by the NFS Logging Daemon (/usr/lib/nfs/nfslogd). The operation of the daemon can be configured using the NFS Logging Daemon configuration file (/etc/default/nfslogd). The location of the NFS server logs and the nfslogd working files are specified by the NFS server logging configuration file (/etc/nfs/nfslog.conf).
The NFS Logging Daemon monitors and analyzes Remote Procedure Call (RPC) operations processed by the NFS server. For file systems exported (shared) with logging enabled, each RPC operation is stored in the NFS log file as a record.
Each record consists of the following:
IP address or hostname of client
