Specify the NFSv4 locking lease period

Contributors

To specify the NFSv4 locking lease period (that is, the time period in which ONTAP irrevocably grants a lock to a client), you can modify the -v4-lease-seconds option. Shorter lease periods speed up server recovery while longer lease periods are beneficial for servers handling a very large amount of clients.

About this task

By default, this option is set to 30. The minimum value for this option is 10. The maximum value for this option is the locking grace period, which you can set with the locking.lease_seconds option.

Steps
  1. Set the privilege level to advanced:

    set -privilege advanced

  2. Enter the following command:

    vserver nfs modify -vserver vserver_name -v4-lease-seconds number_of_seconds

  3. Return to the admin privilege level:

    set -privilege admin
