Description

I have recently setup a NFS share with IPv6 addresses on a gigabit lan. The
performance is abysmal: 500 KB/s max.

Both server and client are running DragonFly-2.8.2/x86-64

The same machines on the same lan have no trouble reaching tens of
MB/s with IPv4. Disk speed becomes the limiting factor.

Time spent copying some big files from the server to a local disk:

v4: sent 86109382 bytes received 31 bytes 24602689.43 bytes/sec
v6: sent 49660678 bytes received 31 bytes 266277.26 bytes/sec

All mounts were using tcp.

IPv6 transfer speed is about 100 time slower than IPv4.

This issue is not NFS-specific: the same performance gap can be seen when
copying files with rsync/ssh between LAN machines.
