I migrated 49 gig of image data to the server over the weekend.
Unfortunately all of the performance testing I did was from one workstation.
CPU utilization is at 98 to 100 percent at all times with 30 users
The server has 512 mb of ram 100mb intel nic
HP netraid controler card with (8) 18gig drives in a raid 10 configuration
and 2 mirrored 4 gig drives for the operating system.
The filesystem performance is good 16 seconds to create a 100mb file "dd
if=/dev/zero of=test.foo bs=1024 count =10000"

ifconfig shows no collisions or any other sort of error.
Please let me know if you see anything in the attached smb.conf file that
might be a problem.

Hi Robert,

	Pankaj forwarded your message to me as I was the
person who set up the VA Research Linux server for the
PC Week benchmark.

Could you elaborate a little more on your configuration
and problems ?

In addition, it may be advantagous to move the discussion
to samba at samba.org or samba-technical at samba.org so more
minds than mine can work on your problem :-).


	Jeremy Allison,
	Samba Team.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
