I have about 5000 distinct shares defined in my smb.conf file. As you can imagine it's quite large.
Everyone once in awhile all the smbd daemons ( in top ) go to a run state and pretty much bring the system to a halt. The system is WAY oversized. 99.999% of the day samba runs fine. We _THINK_ we've narrowed down the times when the smbd processes go crazy to a time when we're updating the smb.conf file. Does this sound reasonable? Is there a better way to create the neccessary shares?
