I'm using NFS to mount a directory from a linux machine that I copy savefiles to as part of our nightly backup. The savefiles add up to about 12GB. I just copy the savefiles to the NFS mounted directory using:

QSH CMD('cp /QSYS.LIB/BACKUPS.LIB/* /mnt/backups')

I ran it for the first time last night and was shocked to discover it took about 12 1/2 hours to complete! I'm on v5r3m0. Is there a way to get improved NFS performance on the iSeries?

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
