I'm tuning my NFS server right now and I want to confirm something. If you
cat /proc/net/rpc/nfsd and pay attention to the "th" line, you are supposed
to be able to tell if you have enough nfs daemons -- I would assume that the
percentile starts with 10% on the left and works to 100% on the right? Can
anyone confirm this?
Basically I'm having problems getting data out of this box fast enough for a
process and I'm going through all of the systems looking for the bottleneck.
I have eliminated RAM and processor so far. I suspect that the disk system
may be bound up, but since this sucker serves it's data to a Sun box that's
about 300 times bigger than it, I wanted to see if there's any room for NFS
tuning. According to the stat below, and my assumption that it increases
from left to right, then I'd say that I need to look elsewhere. Does anyone
have any experience tuning NFS on Linux to server out to Sun? Are there any
known tricks to increase performance?
