Subject: Re: Large file copy to NFS mounted directory causes delay in other application packets

(1) NFS is using TCP
(2) yes eth0 is dedicated to heartbeat and eth1 is dedicated to NFS
(3) I notice the following at the system where file copy is occuring

The kernel Recv-Q of the heartbeat application socket grows but not delivered to the socket recv call. 
Here is the netstat output.

Proto  Recv-Q  Send-Q   Local Address         Foreign Address

udp    11522                0  *:23435                     *:*

As soon as I stop the file transfer, the socket recv call receives the packets and Recv-Q goes 0.
(4) The server has 4 cpu cores and 25G RAM

CC netdev

1) Is your NFS using UDP or TCP ?
2) Is your eth0 dedicated to heartbeats and eth1 to NFS traffic ?
3) How do you know heartbeats are delayed ?
4) Is your server CPU bounded ?

Thanks
