 Hi Managers,

Late Summary due to childbirth   :-)

Thanks to:

the man pages for truss and System Calls; Casper Dik; Rich Teer; Chris Pinnock.

man nfs_share (suggested by many; I couldn't get this to work)

truss -t open,read,lseek -p $PID_OF_RUNNING_PROCESS (suggested by Chris). I found that 
truss -t open -o /tmp/trussoutput -p $PID_OF_RUNNING_PROCESS was sufficient to get the information required and keep it in a useable form.

Thanks all
