SubjectQuestions on NFS client inode management.
Date
Hi,

I have a question on inode management for NFS client.
It seems that the inodes created on a NFS client for
a mounted nfs file system stays around until the file
being removed. Is there any limits on how many inodes
are allowed in memory for NFS? What kind of behavior
we expect if a malicious/careless application just
keeps creating new files and flood the kernel memory
with inodes created?

Thanks,

Xiangping
