I am facing a problem with my application. It uses a windows share to
give access to a buch of dbf (I use FoxPro) files.
When I access it alone (via the share) everything runs fine but when two
users try both face a strange slowdown.
The strange part is that it used to be fast even with dozens of users. It
started to behave strangly a few days ago and I've tried everything,
including creating a new server.
Why am I sending this to the samba list? Because I already run a samba
server in another enviroment and I am planning to use a samba server to
replace this server.
I am assuming that the problem is somewhat related with the OS and how it is
handling locks so...
I am interestered in tips regarding maximizing the performance of the
samba/os in this enviroment.
My distro of choice is CentOS 4.4.
