Hello all,
I have samba v2.2.2 on solaris 5.8 , 
and the large file testing got much faster results
then NFS.
But i need the samba for ClearCase - I have many small
files to transfer,
and in that case NFS works much much better.

Do you know how can i speed up samba for many small
files transfer (14,000 in a group and more)?
mostly i nead it for reading from the samba server.
I already tried all the speed.txt and speed2.txt
papers out there, but without performance increase.

my smb conf looks like this:

        workgroup = TEST-DOM
        netbios name = SAMBA.TEST-DOM
        netbios aliases = SAMBA
        server string = Clearcase SAMBA server
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = testpdc
        smb passwd file = /samba/private/smbpasswd
        username map = /samba/private/users.map
        log level = 1
        log file = /var/adm/samba.log
        max log size = 50000
        large readwrite = Yes
        name resolve order = host wins lmhosts bcast
        max open files = 20000
        socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
        os level = 0
        preferred master = False
        local master = No
        domain master = False
        wins server = testpdc testbdc
        kernel oplocks = No
        remote announce =
        create mask = 0775
        directory mask = 0775
        hide dot files = No
        oplocks = No

        path = /test/samba
        read only = No

Thanks in advance
