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?


I wouldn't expect it to make a difference, but why run it through QSH? Won't a CPY command work for you? I've always worked with NFS in QSYS.LIB rather than QSH or PASE, so I don't know what differences might complicate things.

But I also prefer removing as many layers as I can when tracking things down. Analysis _might_ be simpler. Maybe.
