That depends on what information you want to get. There is rpc2tcpdump,
which is able to decode the rpc2 headers and shows GETATTR/STORE/etc.
(but doesn't look inside the packets).

There is also a `spy' command on the client, which shows opened files,
although it might only be showing the ones that are fetched from the
servers, so if the file is already cached it doesn't show up.

It is also possible to get statistics from both the kernel module and
venus, or turn grep the information you're interested in from the logs
after turning up debuglevels of either the kernel or venus.

Oh, and there is also a bunch of disabled code in both clients and
servers that is able to send usage summaries to a machine on the net.
I don't know if that actually still works.
