On each server I am getting about 45 million hits a month. That is about 4
millions pages a month but unfortunately the pages are customer designed and
some are very very large with lots of images. That is why I gave you hits
instead of visits. My one real server is running SCSI Raid 5. I have about
80nfsd running. The symptom I am having is sometimes when I am in the editor
and do a write or if I do a directory listing it can take up to 30 seconds
to write. 

For Jacob's question, I am serving up static web pages and also I have
scripts that read text and xml files and lots and lots of images

You must be doing crazy ass traffic. What NFS server are you using?  
Are you running v3 over TCP? Are you running the kernel server? We have
three real servers connecting to a single NFS server, which has
8 SATA Raptor's in RAID5 (crazy fast). This setup does 12 million page views
a month with little to no load (it also has a dedicated MySQL server that
all the real servers connect to).
