When I am trying to upload/download the files without OpenVPN the speed is
coming as around 10 MB/s.
With OpenVPN it gets reduced to less than 1 MB/s.
Below is my smb.conf details
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
dns proxy = no
max log size = 1000
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
netbios name = centos
passdb backend = tdbsam
#hosts allow = 127.0.0.0/8 192.168.23.0/26
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE
#min receivefile size = 16384
#se sendfile = true
aio read size = 16384
aio write size = 16384
aio write behind = true
max xmit = 65535
log level = 1
read raw = yes
write raw = yes
oplocks = yes
deadtime = 15
getwd cache = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
load printers = no
printing = bsd
printcap name = /dev/null
disable spoolss = yes
reset on zero vc = yes
security = user
unix extensions = no
wide links = yes
strict allocate = Yes
allocation roundup size = 4096
server signing = no
strict locking = no
#socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=131072
use sendfile = Yes
path = /Shared
browsable = yes
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = no
force user = nobody
Please help me how to increase the speed and how to test.
