I think the details you've omitted mean there's not enough information
there to actually come to any conclusions! :-)
What distro on the clients and servers ?
What kernel versions ?
What does /proc/mounts say on the clients ?
What is underlying the IP network - 1 gigE, 10 gigE, Infiniband,
Myrinet, Quadrics, quantum carrier pigeons ?
What is the MTU ?
What is the file system type on the NFS server that you export (ext3,
XFS, JFS, etc) ?
What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? :-)
