Re: GSoC -- Possible projects

Also FYI - Trond mentioned a much improved Linux nfs stats gathering
tool last week (during the Linux File System Summit) - I think it was
NFSometer (not certain).  See

Would be useful to check on this. The linux nfs git tools repositories
or linux-nfs mailing list might have more info.  Presumably better
than iostat and nfsstat which are also worth examining to see if
similar could be done for cifs/smb2/smb3 kernel stats.
