How much time should it take to copy 1Gb to 5Gb from from Samba server
to Windows Xp in gigabit network?
Default Samba configs, a single copy of a 1GB file takes about 70
seconds to complete, about 14MBps, 117Mbps, about 11% network utilization.
A Windows 2003 server, similar hardware, same network connection, can
transfer the same 1GB file in about 28 seconds, 36MBps, 292Mbps, almost
30% network utilization.
Apache takes 16 seconds, 64MBps, 512Mbps, over 50% network utilization.
