Hi all:

I'm trying to make a VM filesystem benchmark of XCP 1.0 using NFS with
local caching enabled and disabled. I'm using iozone.
My infrastructure is configured as above:

Storage: NetAPP - NFSv3 - 4x gbit ethernet aggregated with Jumbo Frame enabled.
All switches have 10 gbit/s port link and have Jumbo frame enabled in all ports
Servers: blade HP with 10 gbit ethernet - Nehalem processors model
L5640 (2 x 6 cores with Hyper-Threading) - 24GB RAM

The problem: I've 8 gbit/s to write and I think the host is making
cache. It's unfeasible my tests. The iozone is running over a CentOS
5.4 64bit.
