Thanks. So my questions are related to what `monitored by statd' means:

- Why don't all the diskless workstations get an entry in that
directory while they are running? Right now I have 5 running, and
only one has an entry there.

- Why do most entries' mtime get updated periodically, but a few of
the entries go stale with time?

- Why do some of the stale entries get left over even after the
workstations have halted (these ones present the nfs hang issue)?

Take care,
