I have a linux nfs server and a qnx client. I am transfering large
amounts of data between the two. I noticed that it takes a long time to
copy the files from the server to the client and vice versa, i.e. 30
mins for just 16meg of files. How can I speed up the transfer.
my linux server has a ne2000 network card and my qnx client has an intel
i use “fs-nfs2 server_ip:/dir /mnt” to mount the nfs server.
Can you transfer the same file(s) faster using ftp? If not it could be a
limitation of the network driver, or it’s setup. If you notice a large
speedup using ftp, then some settings need to be tweaked in order to talk to
the Linux NFS server. Take a look at the docs on fs-nfs2 and adjust the
block settings, # buffers, and also try using TCP instead, as the transport.
With a PC, I always felt limited by the software available.
On Unix, I am limited only by my knowledge.
