Yes. It is a script that detect the status on the client. The script
uses fping first, then showmount, to detect either network or NFS
service is down. If unfortunately something happens, the script will
try to clean my /var/www using lsof, and then try to umount it. But
I never tried to stop apache. Maybe I can give it a try.
If I directly ifdown eth0 after the network or NFS service failure,
and ifup eth0 after things are done, the problem seems solved. But I
think this is not good since if ifup eth0 fail, I cannot handle it
Thanks for the advice.
