Is the NFS limit exceeded? with num msg=2282599


I see the following num msg number when I execute the nfsstat -d. What limit and the number does this signify? Following is the configuration of the filer as well. Please

num msg=2282599, too many mbufs=0, rpcErr=26, svrErr=0

NFS reply cache statistics:


InProg hits     Misses          Cache hits      False hits

0               0               0               0             

nfs reply cache size=1748800, hash size=27653

flows alloc'd=1103, max flows=17488

flows used=231, flows free=872

reserve entries=108, nflow LRU=0, grow LRU=329, opinfo releases=0

entry alloc fail=0, reply alloc fail=0, flow alloc fail=0, connection drops=0

Connection drops because of in progress hits:

    v3 conn dropped=0

    v4 conn dropped, no reconnect=0

num msg=2282599, too many mbufs=0, rpcErr=26, svrErr=0

How may IOPS and how many NFS requests can the filer support? How to improve this NFS issues on the filer?
