Please identify the O/S for both the client and the server.

If the client is FreeBSD, show us the output of nfsstat -m and grep nfs /etc/rc.conf.

Meter per second? That's an odd way to describe bandwidth.
I think he forgot to write the “b”, i.e. he meant mb/s = millibits per second …
That’s rather slow indeed. Maybe an ULSNET connection is involved here, see RFC 1217 (worth reading!).

This really isn't the way to ask questions and likely partly why you've had no real responses over 3 days. Provide as much information as you can about what you're running and how it's being tested.

What is the NFS client and what is you NFS server configuration? What sort of storage are you using (disks and filesystem). How have you tested the throughput and is it read or write?

NFS on ZFS does have a tendency to suck at write performance with some clients for example, if they happen to mount it in sync mode. That could be an issue here but we'd simply be guessing based on the complete lack of information.
