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.

    Try 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.
