I had a FreeBSD (3.4) server with a Sun Solaris Client some time ago and
got around 10MB/sec read/write via NFS over 100MBit Ethernet, so
everything less seems slow to me :). But I have to admit that this has
been measured by copying large files to and from the server, so maybe
this is not comparable to what nfsio shows.
