Description help 1999-11-04 21:45:39 UTC
mountd issues messages of the type:

export request from IP-ADDRESS
authenticated mount request from HOST:PORT for /FS (/FS)

at a log level of LOG_NOTICE (or possibly higher).

This generates a lot of logging on an active NFS network
for conditions that do not qualify as "significant" (or

The log level should be reduced to LOG_INFO, but there
is no trace of logging in the mount package sources...

It is indeed in the mountd package. The log message string is
authenticated %s request from %s:%d
which may be why it didnt show up with a grep

Is this bug still existant in the Red Hat Linux 8.0 or 8.0.93 Phoebe beta?

Comment 4 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-24 18:57:45 UTC
To answer own question. It is still in Red Hat Linux 8.0. Should this be listed
as a needed fix for future versions?
