Re: How to improve NFS throughput (an answer, not a question)
- Stock slug, no hardware mods. I suspect doubling the CPU speed will
make the curve more level and possibly help the higher end speeds to a
degree (though 40 Mb/s is pretty dang good for a 100 Mb device). A
really interesting thing to do would be attach a USB2 gigabit ethernet
adapter on the slug and see if there's a difference, but I'm n ot sure
such a device exists yet.
Good question about caching. From observations it seemed that
umounting/remounting the NFS mount cleared the cache. I'm not yet
very familiar with the intricacies of file system caching so I may
have some slight errors here. At any rate, the files I'm using are
far bigger than the ram the slug has available for caching.
