In our environment when we do cd to /abc directory it is taking long time.

/abc is the mount point for storage device.

even when we do df -h it is taking long time to display the results.

What could be the problem.

    Thank you for asking this question on the Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    In general, when you mount an NFS the data must travel by the network, your blob storage is an "NFS" located in another data center (if your environment is on-premises), so latency is expected.

    Also, it will depend on the configuration of your storage account, your environment, and the network.

    Hope this helps!

    @ Pratap Lakshminarayana Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting our query here!

    Performance issue may occur due to several reason!

    I would recommended to use Azure Blob Fuse to mount, It has greater performance impact and lot of features.

    Mount an Azure storage blob container or datalake file system on Linux.

    • Basic file system operations such as mkdir, opendir, readdir, rmdir, open, read, create, write, close, unlink, truncate, stat, rename
    • Local caching to improve subsequent access times
    • Streaming to support reading AND writing large files
    • Parallel downloads and uploads to improve access time for large files
    • Multiple mounts to the same container for read-only workloads Troubleshoot performance in Azure Storage accounts Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.
