Do you think I care ?

Now that is something I do care about and FreeBSD's possible poor
NIS client performance is making it look very bad in a large UNIX
network such as the one we run here.
Combine that with the fact that FreeBSD has no automounter that is
compatible with the commercial UNIX systems and you'll see that
FreeBSD is missing out in some key markets (being a client in a
larger UNIX network).
[I dont want to hear the arguments of "Use AMD, it's better"
because there are many situations where the client cannot control
what NIS maps the server will provide].
So if anyone has something useful to offer re: investigating of
FreeBSD's NIS client performance, please reply.
Also news along the lines of "I have written an autofsd and need
people to test it" would be good too.
