I put smbd info "full log" mode. Then I tail -f the log and watched
while I browsed on windows. When windows is absurdly slow, smbd is
showing smbd_dirptr_get_entry entries for every file in the tree.
This is a lot of files in my case. I assume windows is
opening/downloading/peeking_at every file in the tree; however, I do
not know why. The following two steps do not help:
- veto files = /Thumbs.db/
- From windows 7 explorer: "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
So I am left to wonder WTF windows is doing.
