We're having an issue with our linux systems connecting to our netapp via NFS. The read/write IOPS are only around 1000/s but the GETATTR calls are almost 10,000!
I found this bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=321111) but that says it was fixed in kernel-2.6.18-92.el5 and we are on 2.6.18-274.el5.
We are mounting these with noatime.
Any ideas on a fix?
