NFS performance in OSX

in macOS edited January 2014
Compared to my other systems (mostly linux and Irix), we've found the NFS performance over gigabit (non jumbo frame) fairly poor? I've tried different read and write size options and still only get ~25MB/s on average compared to nearly twice that in Linux with same options. These are all G5 running 10.3.1. SMB seems even worse in 10.3.1. I was getting less than 10MB/s.

    I seem to recall a magazine testing Apple's first gigabit motherboards at about 50MBs. This was several years ago, so I can't imagine that it's a hardware issue. Have you tried using AFS?
