dump file locking state for troubleshooting NFS/SMB
Is there a way to dump the gory details of a file's locking states? Which would say which user has locked which parts of the file in which locking mode?
I am trying to understand the interactions of various software on our network. Sometimes weird things happen. We have a Linux 2.4 (Trustix) file server which hosts files through Samba and NFS. Also, we have several Linux 2.6 (Fedora 5) NFS client. Most of the problem is with OpenOffice.org, and the typical sympton is that Windows users get a "general input/output error" when an NFS client has a document open.
