I'm running a nfs-server with current as of Feb. 18'th
2004, serving approx. 5 TB for some web-servers. It's
also acting as a rsync- and syslog-server. The
cpu-usage hardly goes above 10 % while doing nfs,
except when doing internal copying or rsyncing.
Longest uptime was 118 days before I took it down to
add more disks. Works _very_ solid (knock-knock) I
must say.

Are you using tcp or udp?
