Good NFS configuration for Home Network (NFS Performance Issues)

Good NFS configuration for Home Network (NFS Performance Issues)

I have a small LAN that has a couple of Linux boxes (Ubuntu 9.10) with NFS shares on them. The boxes are networked with a consumer grade Netgear router (model WGR614V9) and using wired connections.

"NFS should easily outperform SSHFS. Can you show some specific numbers?

if you run on your server..

dd if=/dev/zero of=test.a bs=1M count=100
dd if=/dev/zero of=test.b bs=1M count=100

then can you do

dd if=/imprt/dir/test.a of=/dev/null
dd if=/path/to/sshfs/mount/dir/test.b of=/dev/null

and post the output?

also, you might want to export the shares under /export and use autofs with auto.net on the clients. which makes all the machines on the lan use the same /net/$hostname/export/foo path structure."
