>Hi Managers,
>I was wondering if anyone out there is running Samba with ~300 clients and
>would they coorespond with me regarding how they pieced it all together.
>In my environment, I'm running into major performance issues which I think
>is the cause of some problems (like Win95 not being able to login, for
>example).  All servers are DU4.0D.
>Performance is terrible, especially on the server end.  My application
>servers routinely have no idle time in CPU.  It's usually split between
>30% user and 60% system.
>Any idea/suggestions would be appreciated.
