anyone tried to speed up samba file transfer over the network by turning
off the kernel opportunity locking - the so called:
"kernel oplocks = no"?
In scenario, where you have purely data storage filesystem (no apps,
databases anything), shared only over Samba and accessed only by windows
client workstations - would it be OK to use the "kernel oplocks = no"
is the "kernel oplocks = no" still Global option??
it used to be a global option, but i read somewhere that devs wanted to
code it as 'Share' option - which would be great for testing ..
I can't find any 'fresh' info on it - anyone can confirm this?
