What is Timeo in NFS?

timeo=n. The time in deciseconds (tenths of a second) the NFS client waits for a response before it retries an NFS request. For NFS over TCP the default timeo value is 600 (60 seconds). The NFS client performs linear backoff: After each retransmission the timeout is increased by timeo up to the maximum of 600 seconds.

What is Retrans in Nfsiostat?

retrans – This is the number of retransmissions. avg RTT (ms) – This is the duration from the time that the client’s kernel sends the RPC request until the time it receives the reply.

What is No_root_squash?

no_root_squash allows root user on the NFS client host to access the NFS-mounted directory with the same rights and privileges that the superuser would normally have.

Why is my NFS slow?

If access to remote files seems unusually slow, ensure that access time is not being inhibited by a runaway daemon, a bad tty line, or a similar problem. Use the nfsstat command to gather information about your network connections. To set MTU size, use the SMIT fast path, smit chif .

What is the difference between hard mount and soft mount washers?

Rigid mount washers have a solid metal base that must be chemically anchored to an Engineered Metal Plinth or over 6” of concrete floor. Soft mount washers have ‘shocks’ that reduce the powerful vibrations exerted on the floor. Soft mount washers are newer, easier to install, and more versatile, but more expensive.

What is soft mounting?

Soft mounting – the Theory By squeezing a soft piece of silicone between the motor and the frame, certain vibration frequencies will get attenuated. Without soft mounting the vibration noise may saturate the gyro reading, making it impossible for the gyro to distinguish signal from noise.

What is No_all_squash?

no_root_squash. Turn off root squashing. This option is mainly useful for diskless clients. all_squash.

What is the maximum Timeo value for NFS retries?

After the NFS request has been retransmitted the number of times specified by the retrans option (see below), a soft mount returns an error, and a hard mount retries the request. The maximum timeo value is 30 (3 seconds).

What is timetimeo in NFS mount?

Timeo is a timeout mount option in NFS mount. It is the timeout value that the NFS client uses to wait for a response before it retries an NFS request. Let’s dive into the details about what this timeout value means between NFS over TCP and NFS over UDP. Check this post to learn more about NFS port.

What is the default NFS RETRANS time for TCP?

For NFS over TCP the default timeo value is 600 (60 seconds) and retrans is 2. The NFS client tries 2 times (as retrans = 2) after the timeo. The total time NFS will wait for is 180 sec after a disconnect to start displaying ‘nfs not responding’ messages The values for these options can be changed per the requirement.

What does RETRANS n mean in NFS?

retrans=n – The number of times an NFS request (a read or write request to a mounted directory) is retransmitted after it times out. If the request does not succeed after n retransmissions, a soft mount returns an error, and a hard mount retries the request.
