I have problems with a samba server. It's almost stable
since the last upgrade, but there are many smbd processes
owned by root, instead by the user.
This is a RedHat-7.3 server. There were many smbd processes
running, I once saw almost 50 for the same user. This was
growing untill we had to restart samba.
I also tried to build the samba-2.2.8 rpm but it was too
unstable in this system.
Since the last upgrade to samba-2.2.7a from RedHat, the only
strange behaviour has been that there are many smbd processes
owned by root.
I check the entries from smbstatus, some smbd are owned by
the user, but many are from root. Is this normal ?
smbd -S entries : 125
smbd owned by root : 49
other smbd : 12
Thank you for your time.
