This wasn't discussed in at the workshop, but I'd also recommend for  
both the fileserver and the client increasing the number of extra rx  
packets. You can do this by passing -rxpck <value>. We use 2400, but  
anything larger than the default would be a good idea.. for a really  
busy client or fileserver, you may want to make it as high as 10,000+.  
Yes, this will cause a little more memory to be used, but nowadays I  
don't think that's a big deal. I'm not sure if there are any other  
tradeoffs, but it often helps with performance.

If your clients or servers are reporting noBuffers, you definitely  
need to increase it.
