i have problems with to heavy load on our samba server (2.2.7) on a sun 
solaris (5.8) server. We use the server to share data for mechanical cad and 
those programs open many, many (e.g. 1400 files in one model) files at a time 
and because of this produce really heavy load on the server (cpu 15%-25% per 
smbd process).

Trying a newer version of samba (3.0.14a) does not really make this better.

Are there any changes that i can do to prevent this?
