Dear Samba Users,
I am preparing a Samba box as standalone server (only files server,
This Samba box is a domain member server, and is dedicaded to serve
files to about 80 domain users.
I am wondering if there are some special requirements for this purpose
in terms of CPUs, Memory ?
The Samba box is a Vmware virtual machine, so I can easely configure this.
I noticed also in some Samba configurations, parameter socket options is
set with TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=819
Does it worth still setting this parameter on recent linux system ?
According to the wiki https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Performance_Tuning :
"The Samba team highly-recommends not setting the parameters described
in this section without understanding the technical background and
knowing the consequences. In most environments, setting these parameters
or changing the defaults decreases the Samba network performance."
