I have a diskless frontend/slave backend that stores recordings on a a
master backend via NFS (as well as it's root partition). Initially I had
poor performance writing to the NFS disk which made capture from the
diskless machine's DVB card problematic.
Initially I was getting a write speed over NFS of somewhere in the order
of 200 kilobytes/s. This was clearly inadequate. Once I tracked down the
problems in my NFS configuration however the situation improved greatly.
