NFS shares mounted into OpenShift containers are slow

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Performance of an application is good when running on my local machine, but the performance becomes unacceptable when mounted into a container in OpenShift
  • OCP containers experience extremely bad i/o read write speeds from our NFS or CIFS shares
  • Please me what settings could be adjusted to improve NFS performance for the cluster.
