How to lower Network File System (NFS) operations by enabling NFS client attribute caching
- Last Updated:
All versions of ONTAP and Data ONTAP
- If the filer has a high number of NFS operations, enable attribute caching on the NFS client to possibly reduce the large number of NFS operations and improve performance.
- Attribute caching remembers file attributes like
permissions, etc., so that attributes that get used often are available locally on the NFS client rather then the filer.
