[root@lpsdm52 ~]# mount -o remount,readahead=42 /net/spsdms/fs13
Bad nfs mount parameter: readahead
[root@lpsdm52 ~]# mount -o readahead=42 /net/spsdms/fs13
Bad nfs mount parameter: readahead


I assume the reply was meant to say that the correct way of introducing a modifyable readahead size is to implement it as a mount option ? :-) I considered it, but it seems to be more intrusive than the workaround patch. It also needs changes to userspace tools - correct?

Cheers
Martin
