Another NFS question

Having just tried NFS mounting one QNX system onto another QNX system for
the very first time I’ve noticed that copying files from one machine is very
slow. Compared with copying files using FLEET networking it seems about 10
times slower. Is this to be expected, or do I have something screwed up?

thanks

Would you please tell us the infomation of the server (using nfsd+mount? or Nfsd?)
and the client (using Socket? or Socklet + NFSfsys?)
Generally speaking, file transfered over nfs is slower than FLEET, but 10 times
slower seems “too slow”. Can you also tell me how large your file is?
Thanks.

My experence is nfs is about 5-10 percent slower
