I've just setup my first Samba server (on a SuSE 8.0 box). I have Samba 2.2.5 =
I just did a couple of simple performance tests and I was wondering if this is =
normal or not.
I have the Samba server and an NT server.
If I transfer a single large file to/from both, the Samba server is 10 - 20% =
faster. That sounds pretty good. :)

on the speed.
I will go into production with oplocks on, but I was checking if it was the =
Is the above what I should expect, or is something mis-configured/mis-tuned?
