Information in this document applies to any platform.


I/O operations  when using NFSv4 are quite slow - with iostat showing service times over 1 second quite often.

The same operations on the same filesystem perform fine when using NFSv3, or locally on the NFS server.

All clients using NFSv4 experience similar impact, with the same or a similar workload.
