My RH 5.2 NFS Install is SO SLOWWW!!
This is taking forever!! The link speed currently is
284 MB in 17 hours!! or 4.6kbytes/s ~ 46kbps
Why is there such a slow server to client link?
I'm doing this using Lynksys Etherfast 10/100 card on a PII350 desktop
a P75 laptop with the PCMCIA version of the Etherfast 10/100. The
LEDs on the cards both indicate that the connections is at 100Mbps, but
See below for all of my network config files in /etc.
I believe that with host.conf setup for "order hosts,bind" that I don't
nameserver. I don't have a local name server setup.
I have tried modifying some of the parameters below during the
running exportfs and turning eth0 off and on (using usernet on the
DURING THE INSTALLATION (it seems that RH5.2 mounts "hard" during NFS
ie it is continuing on after I turn eth0 back on) but with no change on
I did notice when I set the network up before the install that pinging
client to server was odd, some packets took 10ms, others took 1000ms in
almost every other packet trade off. The ping from server to client was
the order of 10 ms every packet. Now with the install going on, ping
server (desktop) is averaging 350ms with any packet size from 256Bytes
I have the following setups in exports, host.conf, hosts, hosts.deny,
hosts.allow and resolv.conf:
192.168.0.1 desktop.mylocal.net desktop
192.168.0.3 laptop.mylocal.net laptop
127.0.0.1 localhost loopback
I have tried resolv.conf with and without commenting out the nameservers
local isp nameservers,) but with no effect.
