I have a server that has 7 large disks that are each shared out via NFS to our webserver.
My question is: Would it be more efficient if I shared the parent directory so that there was only a single NFS mount point on the webserver, or would it make any difference? (ie. I have 7 entries in my /etc/exports file now - and am thinking about replacing them with a single one)
Is there any measure of redundancy in having 7 separate shares? Would it affect the network speed? CPU load? Memory usage?
