I've set up a samba on my freebsd server to provide shared disk for
lan users, but it's strange that samba runs very slow, compared with
that on my old linux box.
here are some masurements:
on linux: win95 client <-> samba disk
copy speed: about 800 KB/sec
on freebsd: win95 client <-> samba disk
copy speed: about 300 KB/sec
on both: win95 <-> unix on ftp
transfer rate: about 900 KB/sec
our lan is 10Mbits ethernet, so I think the ftp speed is a good
reference. besides, my samba config file is very very simple:
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
I used freebsd 2.2.5 stable and linux 2.0.27 for testing.
does anyone has some ideas about this? I'll be very appriciated about
