statfs & remote filesystem
So currently I have a system running on the 188.8.131.52 kernel, and I am using NFS to expand it's storage capabilities. This works fine when my connection is up and running, however when the NFS goes down any scripts I have running that touch the NFS mount will hang. Strace shows the hang at statfs. I looked through google, but I couldn't find anything. Has there ever been an effort put into place that allows statfs to timeout on a disconnected mount?
I did see that there was a statvfs, but I'm not sure if this provides what I want. Is this possible?
