  That sounds like a Linux system.

  Possibly out of memory buffers, or some such.
  Which Linux kernel version ?

  A better place for this is   linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org,
  or  linux-net@vger.kernel.org

  Suggested Subject: "NFS performance degrades when big local
  programs are run".   Do remember to tell kernel version, and
  how much memory your machine has.  Other technical data about
  the machine, and kernel configuration might be usable for
  debugging too.

  I prefer that experts of Linux kernel memory management,
  and NFS services reply to you.
