Snoop and NFS filehandles
Okay, so this is a non-original-content blog entry, but I found it interesting and wanted to link to it. Here is a blog entry about associating the NFS (v3) file handle you see in snoop output to the referenced file on the NFS server. It's another one of those things that's obvious after the fact: "Hmm, an NFS filehandle encodes certain information so that the NFS server can uniquely identify a file, so there must be some way to uniquely identify a file on an NFS server given the filehandle." But I still think it's interesting to see it in practice.
