Hi, Emmanuel.

RHEL 5 machine writing to an NFS v3 mount over GigE (1500 MTU):
   1.22s real 0.00s user 0.06s system

That's way faster than even your local test.  So, I'd say your numbers
do not seem reasonable.

Have you already determined that the problem is with NFS, not the
network (e.g. by using netperf or maybe just "time dd if=/dev/zero
bs=1024k count=100 | ssh NFS_SERVER 'cat > test'")?
