The best i saw for NFS over 10 GE was about 350-400 MB/s write and about 450 MB/s read.
Single server to 8 simultaneous accessing clients (aggregated performance).
On the blockdevice i got 550 MB/s write and 1.1 GB/s read performance.
JL> 126.96.36.199 kernel on both sides, jumbo frames enabled. No switch, just
JL> a CX4 cable.
rsize/wsize are set to?
NFS3 or NFS4?
