Dear all,
I have a difficult Problem with samba 2.2.5, I hope everyone can help me.
My customer has samba 2.2.5 running on a HP Alpha Server ES40 Cluster with Tru64 V5.1. The share on this Server has  3.1 million files in  16000 directories.
Some one this directories have 45000 files on it.
The problem is: if we try a search a file from this  big directory  via an   NT Client the response time is to large for the the customer.
He has run an similar application on a NT File server. NT responded after 1 sec  and samba need 6 sec.
Can someone explain me what I can do to increase the performance, please?
Kind Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüssen
