The RDMA transport for ONC RPC supports direct data placement for NFS
data. Direct data placement not only reduces the amount of data that
needs to be copied in an NFS call, but allows much of the data
movement over the network to be implemented in RDMA hardware. This
draft describes the use of direct data placement by means of server-
initiated RDMA Writes into client-supplied buffers in a Write list
for implementations of NFS versions 2, 3, and 4 over an RDMA

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in

feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
