Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 606263
(NFS client): Disable NFSv4 over UDP
Last modified: 2017-03-13 11:27:00 EDT
This bugzilla has been raised for the NFS Client part.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #606260 +++
At the moment on RHEL 6 beta, we support NFSv4 over UDP.
Where an NFS version 4 implementation supports operation over the IP
network protocol, the supported transports between NFS and IP MUST be
among the IETF-approved congestion control transport protocols, which
include TCP and SCTP
UDP doesn't perform congestion control. This combination is thus not standards compliant.
I came across this thread upstream.
