NFS share causing constant activity
First of all, I'm using Fedora Core 3. The computer I'm connecting from has a properly functioning wireless NIC and the other computer (also FC3) is connected to the network via ethernet and acts as a router and internet gateway for the other computers.
OK, here's the thing: at first when I connect to a share on the second computer from the wireless one, everything is fine. Later on, depending on how much I use the share, the wireless card starts seeing network traffic constantly every second. I checked the traffic coming through, and the only connection is the NFS share, so that is what is causing the traffic. I should mention that this constant traffic of a few KB/s happens when I am not browsing the other computer or actively using the share (the share is still mounted, though).
I am stumped as to what could be causing this traffic. It is a little annoying because the activity light on the back of my computer blinks every second whether I am using it or not. I know I can simply unmount the share (or cover the light with duct tape ), but I am curious as to what causes the traffic. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot guys,
