Could you let me know what hnfs process means?



I am a newbie here. Nice to meet you.

When I type the command "ps -elfc |grep hnfs", I could see the result below.

1 S root 1377 2 TS 19 -    0  worker Oct19 ?   00:00:00 [hnfs/0]

I assume that is not related with nfs service, I have no idea what kind of process it is.

To know what it is, i googled on it, and tried to check the process with pstree.

But nothing I could find.

The system running with centos6.9, and if you have to know more to figure it out,

just let me know.

Help me.
