Re: bbpress is slow like godaddy says?
Most hosts will not admit and definitely not advertise NFS, it’s a downside, not a plus.
But you can tell if you have an account with them by studying
df -a though the shell, php shell or perl cgi shell. Or if they hide/block all that you can write a script to time 1000 reads of filemtime (with clearstatcache) which cannot be cached by the OS and will have telltail lag.
Marketing-wise NFS is usually spun as “unlimited” or “expanding” storage space, like Dreamhost promises extra space each month.
I’m very curious to find out what the “resolution” was.
The latest page show shows 1.432 – 36 queries which is still poor.
