I have the following network configuration:
P4 3Ghz, 1GB RAM
Samba 3.0.24 (options: WITH_ADS, WITH_PAM, WITH_SENDFILE, WITH_UTMP,
Standard FreeBSD NFS Server
Adaptec 2410SA controller with 4 drives running RAID5
Windows XP MCE
Microsoft SFU 3.5 running NFS client over UDP
The client and the server are connected to the same GigE switch.
When I copy one large file (10GB) from the client to the server over an
NFS mount I get an average performance of 18MB/s.
The same file copied from the same directory on the client to the same
directory on the server over a Samba mount averages 4Mb/s.
Any ideas on why is there such a huge performance difference and what
can I do to improve Samba performance are appreciated.
