Hi Alberto,

wow, good hint! We switched from old servers with version 4.1.6 to new
servers (fresh install) with version 5.3 on february 5th. I saw that
there was more network traffic on server side, but didn't watch it on
client side - the traffic went up significantly on both sides, from
about 20-40 MBit/s up to 200 MBit/s, on server side from about 20-40
MBit/s up to 500 MBit/s. Here's a screenshot of the munin graphs:

network traffic on high iowait client:
network traffic on old servers: https://abload.de/img/oldservers-eth1nejzt.jpg
network traffic on new servers: https://abload.de/img/newservers-eth17ojkf.jpg

Don't know if that's related to our iowait problem, maybe only a
correlation. But we see the same high network traffic with v5.3.
