We upgraded our server from RedHat 6.2 to RedHat 7.3, which includes an
upgrade of samba from 2.2.5 to 2.2.7. We have confirmed that samba 2.2.5
running on the RedHat 7.3 system is as fast as it was on the 6.2 system, but
if we upgrade to 2.2.7, then performance drops 20% as seen by NetBench (43.2
Mbits/sec for 2.2.5 and 32.1 MB/sec for 2.2.7) Has anyone else seen this

The config files are exactly the same, but 2.2.5 is consistently 20% faster
than 2.2.7

Thank you,
