> I would like to use samba to share a directory with about 1.5 Mio Files.
> The environment is HP/UX 11.11 on a HP9000 (4 procs, 4GB RAM), vxfs 3.5,
> EMC Symmetrix and samba 2.09.
> When I share the directory via samba and access it from a Win2k machine,
> the Windows explorer hangs and smbd spawns about 15 processes that use
> quite much cpu time. After 30 minutes I killed the processes and the
> Windows explorer...
> Doing an ls -l on the directory only takes 2 minutes.
> Does anybody know how to tune samba to share large directories?
> I already increased shared mem size to 20MB and was surprised that
> smbstatus still reportet 1MB (yes, I restartet smbd...)
> Can anybody help me?
