mkfile - create a file
mkfile [ -nv ] size[b|k|m|g] filename ...
mkfile creates one or more files that are suitable for use as NFS- mounted swap areas. The sticky bit is set, and the file is padded with zeroes by default. Non-root users must set the sticky bit using chmod(1). The default size unit is bytes, but the following suffixes may be used to multiply by the given factor: b (512), k (1024), m (1048576), and g (1073741824).
-n Create an empty filename. The size is noted, but disk blocks aren't allocated until data is written to them. -v Verbose. Report the names and sizes of created files.
If a client's swap file is removed and recreated, it must be re- exported before the client will be able to access it. This action may only be done when the client is not running.
