NFS - does the option - nfs.tcp.recvwindowsize is on the fly?



I'm about to change the parmeter nfs.tcp.recvwindowsize from the default to its maximum using the command: "options nfs.tcp.recvwindowsize  8388608"

My question is if it will catch on the fly, or that I will need to restart nfs.

On the articles I read, there is nothing regarding restarting the NFS - but on bug 103181 ( they say that "nfs off" & "nfs on" should be ran after changing the option. But it seems like an old bug, and maybe this action plan is also old..

When I changed this parameter in my lab, nfs contiued to work normaly, but I don't if this parameters actually got updated in the system.

Please advise
