    You really need to look to google for answers like this. Anyway,
    * /var/lib/nfs/rmtab : each line shows the client's name and the file system imported from this server;
    * /var/lib/nfs/etab: the /etc/exports file only contains a wish list. etab is created by exportfs. It contains on each line detailed information about the options used when exporting a file system towards a single client. It's the reference file used by rpc.mountd when started
    * /proc/fs/nfs/exports contains the clients list as known by the kernel
    * /var/lib/nfs/xtab: Use for accuracy when etab holds client names and machines groups with wildcards. This file only contains explicit machine names.
    The entire article by Frédéric Raynal seems to contain a lot of info about NFS.
