Good info.

One of the difficulties I have had when firing up multiple glusterfsd
servers is in identifying what each is serving (of course, on the server
side). Is there a simple way to determine this? E.g., to get info like:
    pid      port   exporting
    1234     7000   /mnt/xyz
    2001     7001   /mnt/abc

I checked out the /proc fs to see if there was any information that
might help, but I could not find any.

Being able to do this would make it a lot easier to administer a bunch
of running glusterfsd processes without mistakenly taking down access
to an operational filesystem served by a glusterfs server.
