Increasing ncsize to assist NFS performance on Solaris
Last updated on MARCH 07, 2017
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
Severe nfs performance problem with a workload which was operating on hundreds of thousands of files.
The performance problem can be demonstrated by comparing the tarring of 212,000 files to dev/null (tar -cf /dev/null .) over nfs and locally. The local tar was extremely fast but the nfs tar took hours. A simple du -s over nfs also showed slow behavior but was fast locally.
