I have a solaris 9 nfs-server (on sparc) with som TB on HDS attached to it with two qlogic-hba's. These partitions are shared to our webservers via nfs, according to my mrtg-graph I get approx. 8 MB/s at peak. I can probably get more but the requirement is not there. With four-way-servers and FreeBSD 6.2 I had a read- and write-size of 8192. I ended up with this size by copying to and from the nfs-server until I didn't get "nfs server not responding; is alive again" message. Then I upgraded to FreeBSD 7.0 in October 2007 on a new eight-way-server I started to get "not responding; alive again" during load. So I decreased rw-size to the current 2048. When I decreased the size I also avoided another problem (by accident :-) ). When uploading images I sometimes saw ImageMagick's convert went into an (almost) infinite loop, comsuming 100 % cpu (on one core) until killed. Reducing the rw-size eliminated this issue. fstab-entry: my.nfs.server:/archive /archive nfs rw,nfsv3,-w=2048,-r=2048 0 0 I'm using udp-mounts, does not appear to change performance for my part.
