Can "async" be set for Vmware NFS shares?

Subject:

There is nothing on the QuantaStor side for setting "async" on the NFS shares.

Details:

The Vmware best practice and performance guides don't say anything about "async" for NFS as they don't want people doing it.

Please review the link below:

OSNEXUS recommends using ISCSI for VMware datastores that require transnational or high performance workloads.

Using NFS in Vmware does use "sync" for all I/O transactions but iSCSI is able to do better client VM directed I/O for "sync" and "direct I/O" requests and VMware only forces sync operations for datastore metadata and locking operations.
