proplistd - Services remote NFS compatible property list requests
The proplistd daemon services sideband protocol requests from NFS clients for property list operations. Requests may be to get, set, and or delete the property list associated with an NFS served file system object.
The proplistd is a multi-threaded ONC/RPC server. The numthreads argument specifies the number of preallocated service threads. The recommended number of service threads is 1/4th the number of nfsd threads.
The object against which the proplist() operation is performed must be exported with appropriate access: read access for getproplist() operations, and write access for setproplist() and delproplist() operations.
The proplistd daemon is typically started by nfssetup.
