NFS traffic over broadcast -- normal or not?
currently I am looking into an issue where the amount of network traffic is causing timeouts and client device dropoffs on an antiquated 10baseT network over a lan bridge. One side of the lan bridge (the one having problems) is 10mb/s network... the other side is 100mb/s. In troubleshooting why the devices were dropping off the 10mb side, we saw a lot of NFS traffic from the 100mb side. I didn't think I would see other client's NFS traffic on anything but their network trace, but in testing it on a couple of other devices I now can see NFS traffic for any device on our LAN -- is this normal? I can find no documentation about NFS traffic being broadcast traffic. Anyone have experience with this?
