Sorry, just to be clear -- is the message you're getting on the NFS client, or the NFS server? Could you turn on debug.witness_ddb and get a stack trace for the warning? > Before I upgraded from 4.8, I used to be able to send at about 8mb/s to > the nfs exported raid5.

You appear to have the kernel debugging features turned to high (which will be useful for resolving this problem :-). Turn off WITNESS and INVARIANTS and you should see a substantial performance improvement. It may not be back up to 4.x levels -- we hope that with ongoing network stack locking work we'll be back to 4.x (and exceed them) in the next few months.
