Improving NFS Performance?

» close window

The Question is:

VMS NFS Performance.
We have a VAX 7810 NFS server which is accessed from a HP L2000 server (client
 NFS). The problem is that the speed we achieve is quite slow (executing ls
 from the HP client takes several seconds to finish and often seems blocked for
 a while). Network load
 is very low so the problem seems to be in NFS configuration.
Is there any way to improve NFS performance? We have searched several manuals
 and documents unsuccessfully.

The Answer is :

  The particular bottleneck -- NFS server, NFS client, local file
  system, remote file system, network hardware, etc -- will need to
  be identified.  The particular NFS implementation and ECO will
  also need to be identified.  Assuming this is TCP/IP Services for
  OpenVMS, please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center.
