write/read throughput with NFS client connected to F880

I've got an older filer--F880 running ONTAP 7.1.3. When I mounted one of its volumes as an NFS share on my pretty new Linux box, I am getting only 2MB/s write tput. Both boxes are on the same LAN, so network shouldn't be a bottleneck. Is 2MB/s pretty much all one can get, or it can be increased? I played with some mounting options, but didn't see much difference. Below is an excerpt from "stats show -i 1 -n 300 volume:vol_10gb" when writing a 500MB file:

What would be the ballpark value of write performance for FAS3270, for example?

Re: write/read throughput with NFS client connected to F880

Curious what you are using to generate load.

I am getting the following on a FAS3050. The throughput I've seen on FAS32xx series is at least double.

Re: write/read throughput with NFS client connected to F880

Thank you, Doug. In light of your data, 2MB/sec doesn't look too low for F880.
