If one runs bonnie on a NFS mounted share, what should the rewrite
throughput be?

On an NFS server locally (2.6.1-mm3) I get as write/rewrite/read
speeds 107 / 25 / 110 MB/sec, CPU loads of a few percent.

On an NFS client (2.6.1-mm3, filesystem mounted with options
udp,nfsvers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768) I get for the same share as
write/rewrite/read speeds 36 / 4 / 38 MB/sec. CPU load is also
very high on the client for the rewrite case (80%).

That's with back-to-back GigE, full duplex, MTU 9000, P IV 3.0 Ghz.
(I tried MTU 5000 and 1500 as well, doesn't really matter).

Is that what would be expected ?
