      Namespace Database (NSDB) Protocol for Federated File Systems


   This document describes a file system federation protocol that    enables file access and namespace traversal across collections of    independently administered fileservers.  The protocol specifies a set    of interfaces by which fileservers with different administrators can    form a fileserver federation that provides a namespace composed of    the file systems physically hosted on and exported by the constituent    fileservers.
