I find a quick and easy way to find out which host is hammering
an NFS server is to just do a couple of 
  netstat | fgrep :2049 | awk '(($2+$3)>0)'
and see which connections have a non-empty  Send-Q  or  Recv-Q

Doesn't require that any fancy metrics have been previously configured
and has helped me a few times.

Yes, you could combine the grep & awk, but that needs more keystrokes.
Sometimes the awk is not even required (if only a few clients and you
have tall windows).

Dave !
