Subject2.4.8 NFS Problems
Date
I've been getting random NFS EIO errors for a few months but now it's
repeatable.
Trying to copy a large file from one 2.4.8 SMP box to another is
consistently failing (at different offsets each time).
This doesn't appear to be a network problem as the last comm between the
machines looks OK.
By the timestamps it appears that a read() is taking too long and causing a
timeout?
I dropped the rsize and wsize on the mount from 8192 to 4096 and this solved
the problem (I had repeated this problem at least a dozen times before doing
this).
With the 4096 wsize there was one 5 second read delay and 3 at approx 2
seconds each.
So...it appears wsize 8192 was causing a timeout of some sort?

Here's a tail of the strace of the "cp" process with relative time stamps:
