We run SAMBA v2.0.7 on an AIX v4.2.1 box. As of some recent SAMBA
version, the fileservice has become extremely slow most of the
time (reasonable speed may be seen, if you're really lucky).
The transfer speed of file reads is 20-40 kBytes/sec.
If you access the same AIX files from the same Windows client
using FTP, you get close to media speed (10 Mbit Ethernet).
The AIX box seems perfectly healthy, except for the speed of SAMBA.
Question: Does anyone know a cure for improving the speed
of SAMBA on AIX 4.2.1 ?
