| I've been doing some testing between Windows 2000
| Pro (SP4) and Windows 2000 Server (no SP and SP4) --
| specifcally testing file transfers from a Samba
| 2.2.8a server.
| Samba config file changes:
| socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=65536 SO_RCVBUF=65536
| max xmit = 65536
| read size = 65536
| getwd cache = Yes
| locking = Yes
| The various shares have "use sendfile = yes"
| Initial testing shows that the Windows 2000 Server
| stack is almost _twice_ as fast as the Windows 2000
| Pro stack. It's unbelievable that Microsoft would
| cripple their product this way.
No, it's quite consistent with the commercial spirit -
more money, more power. But can you see what the
difference in various registry settings is? E.g. how
big the TCP packets are?
