NFS databases

We have been NFS mounting our Genbank and Protein databases and have
not seen any effect.  We support several different analysis packages -
GCG and Eugene - and I do quite a few searches on my own (sometimes
hundreds per day).  We have never seen an effect on the network -
certainly nothing approaching saturation.

I don't think it is a problem.  We have a lot more demand from people
moving 25 - 100 Meg scanned image files over the network than from
shared sequence databases.
