[Samba] Samba 4 fileserver perfomance

If you still have 100Mbit network adapters on your system and router, that probably means your equipment is quite old. 

I would test your disk speed using something like. 

Disk write performance: 
time dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=20 of=random-a.img 

Disk read performance: 
time cat random-a.img > /dev/null 

And your network using netcat for example, testing this both ways (from system A to B and from system B to A) doesn't hurt: 

That way you better know the actual speed your system can achieve other than what it 'should' do.
