I am looking for some advice from the learned.
Each desktop in our office mounts /home from the server so anyone can login
wherever they like. They also share files in a dummy account also on /home.
However the performance is not great and I regularly get complaints of slow
computers - and they are slow. The desktops are a decent spec (2GHz with
512mb RAM). Starting Openoffice can be slow - which seems odd as its stored
locally and loading a presentation is even worse. I think something is wrong
with my routing or my nfs setup.
The /home is exported with
and is mounted at the other end with the options:
Should I be using tcp? also is sync killing performance?
Any suggestions welcome
