I just wanted to check in on this list and see what folks know about the
new severe performance problems with OS X 10.11.5.

There's a long thread on the Apple Support Communities site:

There's a comment on Reddit claiming that 10.11.5 is requiring SMB signing,
but I haven't found documentation on that:


I myself saw performance on my 10 GbE go from 800 MB/s on 10.11.4 to 60
MB/s on 10.11.5. My NAS is running Samba 4.3.6 on FreeNAS, which is a
FreeBSD derivative.

I'd love the reassurance that whoever can fix this is doing so--either the
Apple developers or the Samba developers.

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
