Could someone please provide me with some information on optimising NFS for home folders please?
I have 8 Apple Xserves running network home folders via NFS and we are experiencing some slow performance.
All Xserves are Dual Intels with between 3 and 6 GB of RAM all running Snow Leopard Server 10.6.4 We have set the threads for NFS on the servers to 40 and the clients to use 32.
I have read this topic, but the information seems to be 11 years old (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/nfs/Q_23471924.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+nf+optim
These servers serve upto 950 workstations.
Is there a set number of threads per connection / server or other best practice to follow ?
