My smtp server does not recognize samba-bugs at samba.org to I send it
to samba at samba.org
I have setup a Samba server on a Compaq Alpha 21164 system with 512M
RAM and running Compaq Tru64 (Digital UNIX) OS.
First I am using Samba 2.05a, and it's read speed or write speed is
very slowly on some client PC, it's about 500KB/s. Some PC works
fine but some not even they are using same version of Windows 98.
I try tune it with different socket option like SO_SNDBUF=65536 and
SO_RCVBUF=65526, it's useful on some PC but not on others.
After about half year. I upgrade Samba server to 2.0.7. The read
speed seems has some increase on my PC but the write speed is slow
down to about 500KB/s although it's about 2.5MB/s on 2.05a.
I use NetXRay to trace, it seems the transmission is break rapidly
and then server send a error message to client:
Error-not enough data!
Please see attachment for more detail.
After several test, I set "write raw=no" and get a very high
performance on write: about 4MB/s.
If you want me do more test to find the problem location, please
tell me how to do. BTW, I am live in China so my English is worst.
