with nfs v3 a lot of bugs were introduced on nfs server.
be shure to be on bos.net.nfs.server >126.96.36.199
choose adequate number of nfs-threads (see performance guide)
nfso -a -o nfs_max_threads=$BIG_NUMBER
or smit chnfs
is a good start (where BIG_NUMBER>>8)
to see the number of active threads:
a: find the pid of the nfsd process, ppp
b: issue ps -p ppp -mo THREAD
The first couple of threads shown are control threads, the rest are
actual nfsd threads. If you look for threads with a nonzero value in the
C column, this will give you (roughly) the number of threads which ran in
the last second or so. If all your threads always show cpu, then you
