I'm running samba server on board and client is windows 7.

I did below steps for performance tests.
+ format /dev/sda1 with ext4
+ mount the drive in server as mentioned in [media] path of /etc/samba/smb.conf
+ created a root password
    $ smbpasswd -a root
+ 1Gb ethernet interface from board.
+ map the driver in windows
+ did a 4gb robocopy
+ read got 13MBps and write got 105MBps

Could any one suggest me any inputs why read got too slow, do I need to look
at any config options in /etc/samba/smb.conf
