Default Bug#364607: reproducible in etch?

I've just reran the tests with the same hardware. However the client
machines are tracking testing. The server is running Debian/etch with
2.6.18-6-686 and nfs-common 1:1.0.10-6+etch.1, the clients are running:

host OS kernel nfs-common HW

------ --------------- ------------- ---------------- -------------------

host5 1000 118 udp 35 10

The tests:
- discard:
# dd if=/dev/zero bs=1024k count=1024 | nc -q 0 server discard
- create /tmp/tmpfile:
# dd if=/dev/urandom of=/tmp/tmpfile bs=1M count=1024
- mount /mnt with either of:
# mount server:/share /mnt -t nfs -o rw,udp
# mount server:/share /mnt -t nfs -o rw,tcp
- write and read tests:
# dd if=/tmp/tmpfile of=/mnt/tmpfile bs=8k
# dd if=/mnt/tmpfile of=/dev/null bs=8k

The network was otherwise in normal (not too heavy) use so the results
may be a little off (the NFS performance over TCP on host3 surprised me
a little but I couldn't really get any better numbers than this).

I would say the problem is still there. The machines that run on 100Mbit
have slower read performance when on UDP than on TCP. If you want I can
also test different client/server combinations but that will be in the
new year and these test cost quite some time to execute.
