I' m newbie to this list, and need a tip:
I' have used an older applications, that use many files simultaneously
from a Win 98 client. It had a slower response from a Win 98 Server.
After, I have changed the server to Linux (RH 6.2 whith Samba),
same hardware as W98 Server.
Application response was faster. (Either with a ext2 or vfat filesystem).
To understand what was wrong, I runned System monitor (Client W98),
and the only difference I have seen was the "Network Client/Transaction per
when I used Win 98 as server it reached a value of 1800 tps, when I used
Linux Samba it reached 60 per second.
Therefore, I suspect the problem is in Windows 98 server, as the client was
in some way it generates an high number of this "transactions".
In a small systems (2/3 users, I generally prefere non install a Linux
I searched for a Samba server for Win 32, but not found yet.
Some suggestions ?
Thanks in advance.
