Recently, I tried to add an NFS mounted volume to the set of discs. It did not work. I know that it is pretty inefficient to use NFS-mounted hardisks - but - my institute has the nice policy to buy server with lots of memory but without local harddiscs. Unfortunately I need both...
You are right. I do not expect good performance with STXXL on NFS.
Could you suggest your institute to buy a small hard disk for your experiments? Even an external USB2.0 drive would be faster than NFS.
What was the error message?
