Default Redhat NFS resource

I've got about 20 clients mounting home directories from 1 server, I
haven't seen much performance degradation at all.

I don't see a massive resource hog from NFS, but I don't use it for lots of clients - I've got ~1.5TB NFS shared for 3 clients to use, and the hosting box isn't even fazed. (Of course, it's an 8 core 16gb box...) There are processes running, but it doesn't seem like they take much time.

Subject: Redhat NFS resource

I am currently running Redhat version 4 emt64 on a number of machines and I
am thinking off making one of the machines a NFS server, hooking it up to
the storage via a new fibre HBA, then sharing the storage out via NFS to
all the other Redhat machines. The question I have is does running NFS on
the Redhat machine cause performance issues, i.e. more processes running,
more memory etc. The reason for the question is so I can pick the correct
machine to use. Also if anyone has any advice/documents or links on setting
this up it would be much appreciated.
