Diskless nfs problem

I have about 100 diskless freebsd routers and I have problem with huge traffic to nfs server. The mostly traffic is generated by requesting file rights over GETATTR CALL to lib files, eg.


Is there any chance to change this behavior? My diskless machines are booted over pxe described at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-diskless.html .

My load of nfs server is (because of this behavior):

load averages: 48.33, 47.83, 47.75
and top
1059 root            60  52    0  9912K  1236K RUN     7    ??? 788.96% nfsd

Thank you very much
