Optimize "Windows 2016 NFS client" folder creation performance


Problem: Folder create performance is slow on MS Windows 2016 explorer using client for NFS


Solution: Modify Windows registry to so that "AttributeTimeDelta" has a value of 1

Changing "AttributeTimeDelta" to 1 (second) forces "client for NFS" to refresh the directory contents instead of waiting for the default timer of 30 seconds.


1. Add new registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Client for NFS\CurrentVersion\Users\Default\cache


2. Add new registry DWORD value

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Client for NFS\CurrentVersion\Users\Default\Cache\AttributeTimeDelta 1


3. Reboot the server
