NFS and transfer speeds !

Hi all, 2nd post in one day..

As stated in other post her, NFS up and running, but speed ?

With the default setup I get everything from stalled (konqueror) , 10 Kb/s to 1-4 Mb/s, after mounting on the client side with nfsvers=3 , transfers STARTED at 30-40 Mb/s then quickly dropped to a steady 1,2 Mb/s and occasional stalls.

Now I'm curious, how do you ppl speed up your NFS transfers ?? Alternatively, is there faster linux file sharing options ?

At least it's working

Problem solved thanks to the following :

added the option in /etc/exports on the serverside to 'async'

restarted services on the server in this order :

/etc/init.d/portmap restart
/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
/etc/init.d/nfs-common restart

then from client :

mount -o remount nfsservernamehere:/home/shareddir

now it's steady at 21 Mb/s ! (100Mbit NICs in both server and client)

Posting this in case somebody can benefit...not bad problem solved in same day..

btw, remember that I still had the client fstab set to nfsvers=3
