There are a whole lot more variables that I haven't seen covered yet. 
Are you using TCP mounts or UDP mounts? Try toggling that setting and 
see if your performance increases. Are you using rpc.lockd, or not? Try 
toggling that. What mount options are you using other than TCP/UDP? What 
does the network topology look like?

It's very likely that we can help you here, but more information is needed.
