Chimera's PortMap?

Why dCache contains its own PortMap? implementation

  • NFSv3/2 can't run without portmap. While NFS port is fixed and well know, mountd port is undefined and you need to run portmap. CHimera will start embedded portmap if system does not have one.
  • moder distributions run new version of portmap service ( i guess rpcbind ) which require application on the machine run as root user. The actual check is that source port of of client which updates portmap have to be < 1024. There is no 'out of box' solution for it in java. Thats is why I recommend to stop portmap service.
