Hi all
we've got about 60 NT-PCs running and connecting to a
samba fileserver. This server is a HP-Workstation (HPUX)
It seams that each connecting PC creates a separate
smbd process with the size of around 1700 KB.
That is with 60 processes ....
Is that the normal behaviour (on other platforms too)
or is there some switch ?
