You setup is already slightly CPU-limited when reading/writing encrypted partitions. Any additional CPU needed by NFS is then directly deduced from CPU available for encryption.
Not sure if it help, but it would be interesting if you can try to use patch from this thread http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1245748 (it can be completely unrelated though, I have no time to test it now myself) BTW I will add possibility to use null cipher to cryptsetup, just to test exactly these situations (null cipher eliminates all crypto operations), for now, you can try it with dmsetup and measure preformance (this should uncover if encryption is the problem or there is some timing problem): (Replace DEV with your disk, note key is "-" - means empty) dmsetup create x --table "0 $(blockdev --getsz DEV) crypt cipher_null-ecb-null - 0 DEV 0" Milan _______________________________________________ dm-crypt mailing list dm-crypt@xxxxxxxx http://www.saout.de/mailman/listinfo/dm-crypt
