Thank you for the reply. I have asked the Raidzone tech for a copy of
their Samba source, and we are also investigating network issues. Another
thing we are doing is testing the large file copies on a spare Linux
system, for comparison to the Raidzone unit. This test computer started
off with Samba 2.2.1a-4, and copied a large file fine, and much faster than
the rate we get on the Raidzone when it works. We then updated the test
machine to Samba 2.2.8a-1, and it took 50% longer to copy the file.
Is a performance decrease like this a common experience with the newer
versions? Are there some customary settings we should check?
