URGENT: Need help understanding IOZONE reports

I have a set of reports from a run of IOZONE.  I am having problems understanding the graphed data.  Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
We are having issues with NFS from an IBM server to a Netapp filer.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is some documentation on Iozone: http://www.iozone.org/docs/IOzone_msword_98.doc.  Let me know if this is even in the right direction of what you are looking for.

Thanks for the reply.  I have looked at the documentation on Iozone.  What I need to know is how to interperate what I am seening in the graphs and data.
Try http://www.iozone.org/docs/IOzone_msword_98.pdf again. Scroll down to page 11, it shows a Read performance graph and a few others. It also explains what it is your looking at, how to get accurate reports, and basic details of how to configure IOzone for use with NFS...

I have looked at the docs but I still need to get a clear understanding of the results.  The docs are not clear on exactly how to interpret the graphs and results.
