I have a compute and storage node. The home directory is shared via NFS. I'm having a problem with the IO when logged from the compute node. It runs incredibly slow. For example a "$wget" or "$svn co" will take several orders of magnitude from the compute node than from the storage node or a "$make" due to creating the files/installing will run slow. Presumably this is due to the IO writing from the compute to the storage node. I've run several tests to convince myself that it is indeed the IO. Both nodes are connected through a gigabit switch and it's a straightforward install.
I'm at a loss on how to troubleshoot this because I'm very new to NFS setup etc. Any advice on how to even start trouble-shooting this will be greatly appreciated.
