NFS client performance differs by mount point
I have an odd situation. I have a Linux server with an NFS mount over TCP to a NetApp filer. There are various application logging to the /logs mount point, which is where the filer is mounted. lsof /logs shows 250 things are open (exactly 250, if that is significant). When I mount the exact same volume to a temporary directory at the exact same time, my read performance goes from 70KB/s or so to 150+MB/s. A huge, huge difference. I'm at a loss as to why. Do any of you have any ideas?
