I need to tune Samba for maximum throughput.
Our NAS server is used for MPEG2 viteos storage. We stream and copy
files at the same time.
Network is a full gigabit : switch Linksys SRW2016 (jumbo frames
enabled) + category 5e wire
Does anyone has got an idea of which is the theorical throughtput of
Currently I have +o- 20Mbytes/Secs ...
On big files I can go up to 40Mbytes/Secs
With AppleShare+Netatalk I can got up to 60Mbytes/Secs
How can optimize Samba or my system or clients to boostup transfers ...
I've get my config from FreeNas. My samba is setup to act as Wins Server
workgroup = MSHOME
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
wins support = yes
dns proxy = yes
name resolve order = wins lmhosts host bcast
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=16384
use sendfile = yes
os level = 65
read raw = yes
write raw = yes
max xmit = 65535
oplocks = yes
deadtime = 15
getwd cache = yes
strict locking = no
large readwrite = yes
Any tips or ideas are welcome
