    Quite, at least some percentage of the whole system.

    Good idea, I should have done that myself - sorry

    I think we were able to pinpoint at least one user's jobs to "generate"
    this, but I need to talk to him, what access patterns are used via NFS here.

    Systems are running Debian Etch,

    dpkg -l | awk '/(nfs|portmap)/ {print $2 "\t\t" $3}'
    libnfsidmap2 0.18-0
    mountnfs 1.1.3-2
    nfs-common 1.0.10-6+etch.1
    nfs-kernel-server 1.0.10-6+etch.1
    portmap 5-26

    If you need more, please let me know! So far the machines are 'on hold',
    i.e. we have not yet rebooted them to be able to find out a little bit
    more. If you(anyone) think we can reboot them and put back into our
    scheduling queue, please let me know, the users are waiting for more cycles.

    Thanks a lot
