I'm looking for maximum of performance for a NFS mount.

I'm on local network, it could be completly unsecure, the performance is the most important in my case.

What I already found :

In /etc/export I've defined async mode, and it already helped a lot.

In /etc/default/nfs-kernel-server I've found following variables, which could potentially increase the performance :

# Number of servers to start up
RPCNFSDCOUNT=8
# Runtime priority of server (see nice(1))
RPCNFSDPRIORITY=0
# Options for rpc.mountd.
RPCMOUNTDOPTS=--manage-gids

The NFS server is on Linux Mint, and the client, which mount remote partition is Debian 6.

If there are any recommendation for maximum performance of NFS server ?

Should I change the RPCNFSDPRIORITY ?

If there are any other parameters, which could boost NFS server ?

Cient actually mounts the NFS partition with following configuration :

server:/remotepath    /localpath    nfs4 rw,intr,hard,noatime,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 0 0

Is that optimal mounting options for NFS v4 share ?

You mentioned you don't care if it's unsecure, then try to go with nfs v3. but if you find something more concrete I would love to know as well. –  BitsOfNix Mar 27 '13 at 13:43
    
If I understand good, v4 is more performant, than v3, at least it's mentionned at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_File_System –  Fedir Mar 27 '13 at 14:32
