NFS and netapps

It looks like the Fedora core 2 default (probibly the 2.6 kernel default) of rsize=32768,wsize=32768 for NFS mounts doesn't agree well with NetApp fileservers. It works ok until you have to transfer a lot of data, then it gets slower and slower and starts taking 30min to return 'ls' results. Setting it back down to rsize=8192,wsize=8192 seems to fix the issue. Just something to remember if you have Fedora core 2 Linux NFS clients and a NetApp server.
