Description Charlie Wyse 2010-04-28 08:22:16 EDT
Description of problem:
When writing files to a NFS server, they can utilize a lot of memory to write in pages.  We would like to be able to set this to a tuneable so that an administrator can control the amount of memory used by NFS.

Could you explain in more detail what you're seeing?  What evidence do you see that the NFS server is using too much memory, what kind of memory do you see it using, and how is that memory use causing you problems?

No response to Bruce's query for almost a year. Closing it.
