Linux pNFS features a pluggable client and server architecture that harnesses the potential of pNFS as a universal and scalable metadata protocol by enabling dynamic support for the file, object, and block layouts.

pNFS is part of the first NFSv4 minor version. This space is used to track and share Linux pNFS implementation ideas and issues.
