Agreed, but I'm not sure where the question belongs. Was trying to figure out where it's best to post it, but posted on both to see where I got the best answers...

comment Concurrent NFS access
Ok, I was out of context there... The question isn't really about files being modified by multiple users, the scenario is rather one client process creating/updating files and a server process reading the same file. One solution I was offered was that the clients writes to a tmp file and then renames it when done (in context of FTP transfer). How would that work in the NFS case? Should I be worried in client cache etc...?

Yeah, that's how I would solve it if it where my private server. This is for a thing at work though where the communication protocol apparently is uploading/retrieving xml files on a FTP server. Thanks for the answer.
