The mapping to an NFS share responds very slow

Version 1

    Problem

    Consider the following scenario:
    • An IBM AIX server with NFS version 5.3.12.7 is used to host an NFS share.
    • This NFS share is mapped in a RES ONE Workspace managed session.
    In this scenario the mapping the NFS share responds very slow when it is opened.

    The performance is severely degraded.


     

    Cause

    The NFS protocol is not natively supported by the AppGuard driver for translating the hardware paths to logical paths.

    If the driver finds a hardware path that is not recognized, it will use a Microsoft Windows API to do the translation.
    This API responds very slow, which in turn slows down the response of the mapping to the NFS share.


     

    Solution

    This issue is resolved in RES ONE Workspace 2016 SR1.

    Note:

    This change only applies to the described scenario.
