man problems - nfs from V3.2 to V3.1 machine

man problems - nfs from V3.2 to V3.1 machine

Post by Vicki Jord » Wed, 19 Aug 1992 10:33:37

We upgraded  one machine to V3.2.  It has a cdrom with info and man on
it and it is nfs mounted to another machine still at 3.1.5.  When doing
a "man" on the 3.1 machine, the characters are painted on the screen so
slowly - its worse than a 300 baud modem line!  It "appears" that there
may be related to escape characters since options (with all the left
and right braces) are slow and new paragraphs lose the first character.

Has anyone else experienced this?  Does anyone know how I can track down
the problem? Will it go away if we upgrade the second machine?

And, as someone else mentioned, accessing the cdrom is really much
slower than with 3.1, even on the same machine!

1. Problem: performance NFS V3 vs NFS V2

I have a performance problem using NFS mount.
I export a file system from a machine using NFS V3 (AIX 4.2.1)
I mount this filesystem on a machine with NFS V2 (AIX 4.1.4)
The  transfer rate is worse than NFS V2 mounted on NFS V2
On the other hand if I mount the same exporeted filesystem on another
NFS V3 sysstem and that i use the "nfs3" filesystem type the transfer
rate is excellent.

Does anybody knows the solution to speed up my NFS mount when the client
runs NFS V2 (AIX 4.1.4) and the server runs NFS V3 (AIX 4.2.1).
I do not want to update my AIX 4.1.4 system.
