Hi guys,

I am running samba 3.023 @ Debian 4.0 Etch (Still beta, but had the same
problem om Debian 3.1r3)
The strange thing is my upload speed is about 30MB/s, but the download speed
is about 5MB/s. 
I have noticed breaks during the download. (look at attached images).

The server is a Opteron 144 @ 1.8 GHz with 2GB DDR and 4 SATA disks in RAID
10 configuration (this should be good enough for a max througput of
120MB/s... The 30MB/s limit is because of my (slow) laptop-harddisk).


This is my smb.conf:

	map to guest = Bad User
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	time server = Yes
	veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/
	wins support = Yes
	unix extensions = Yes
	netbios name = INSIDE
	netbios aliases = FILE MAIL
	server string = 
	writeable = Yes
	printing = lprng
	workgroup = SERVERS
	os level = 32
	domain master = Yes
	domain logons = Yes
	logon script = svr_boot.bat
	create mode = 0770
	directory mode = 0770
	log level = 1
	security = user
	local master = yes 
	preferred master = yes

	comment = Home Directories
	inherit permissions = Yes
	veto files = .*/*Desktop*/*Maildir/*
	browseable = No
	comment = Public directory
	path = /public
