Hi Samba world,

Have been struggling with this for the past 10 days, we are running Samba 
3.0.22 on VCS zone, we have end users saving files
onto Samba mapped drive, and complained that it 5mins to save 300 files, 
now it takes 30 mins.  There is recently a change in the


        Enduser ----------- samba mapped -------------- server (local 
attached storage)
                                                      Solaris 8
        Enduser-------------samba mapped ------------  server 
------------------------------ SFCFS/HA
                                                     virtual VCS NFS 
                                                     Solaris 10 

        We have reverted the NFS from version 4 to 3

        Fine tune Samba, wb and rb are at 64k

        Is there in samba log somewhere to tell me why is the bottleneck ?
        If I move the Samba server which is less loaded in Memory 
consumption , will it help.
        Is the above degrading expected ?
