I must be missing something. :-(

I do 
sockstat | egrep "416|415|....|427"|less

Where the dots represent the PIDs of the most heavily used nfsd processes. 
Only one that comes up is: 

root     nfsd       415   3  tcp4   *:2049                *:*

I also tried
sockstat |grep "2049" and get exactly the same line.

However tcpdump returns lines such as:
15:36:.. IP <IP>.1759450495 > <IP>.nfs: 176 lookup [|nfs]

I am a tcpdump newbie.. Am I missing a port in that line?

It seems as if sockstat doesn't report the communication going on in nfs.
