That is a useful tool but
1) it does not help to identify the exported filesystem
2) lsof does not report anything when using the SDP transport

Perhaps I would extend the desired info to be:
    pid   transport   port   exporting
    1234  tcp         7000   /mnt/xyz
    2001  ib-sdp      7001   /mnt/abc

Ideally, this would all be wrapped up in a glusterfs tool which
may or may not do stuff like lsof. I suspect that glusterfs would
be able to do things more simply because it knows "stuff" that a
mishmash of other tools would not.
