29.12 Slow Mount Performance for NSS Volumes Using the UNIX Name Space

Normally, NSS volumes mount in seconds, even if the volume contains large directories with millions of files. You might observe that an NSS volume mounts slowly if it contains large directories and if you are mounting it with a UNIX name space.

To avoid this problem, mount NSS volumes on Linux with a Long name space. For information, see Section 18.11, Mounting NSS Volumes with Linux Commands.
