I have two machines running under SuSE Linux 6.1 (kernel 2.2.7) and AIX
4.2.1. On the AIX-machine some file-systems are exported via
/etc/exports with the insecure option. The Linux box is able to mount
these file-systems correctly but the writing
performace is less than poor while reading is OK. In the Linux's logs I
like "nfs : task xxx can't get a request slot" or "nfs-server yyy is not
responding / nfs server yyy OK".
While the combination Linux 2.2.7 / AIX 4.2.1 is problematic, the same
physical connection between the Linux box and another with a 2.0.36
kernel and between AIX and 2.0.36 is OK.
Is there anyone who knows some reasons for this behaviour (not 42 ...).
