[jcifs] Re: Large File upload performance

Okay, I just did a simple test.  I copied a 32MB file from one machine to 
another using SMBFS on the client side and Samba on the server side.  It 
took 5minutes, 9seconds.  Copying the same file to the same location using 
Put.java took 5minutes, 21seconds.  The difference is small enough that it 
is likely to be the result of variations in network speed (this is over a 
cable modem link and it tends to have a lot of jitter).

To be honest, the above doesn't tell us much.  If there is a difference in 
software performance, it is likely to be drowned out by the slow network 
speed.  If the problem that Naved is seeing has anything to do with 
protocol usage then my test does not provide any comparable data.
