Slow Samba on Gigabit?
I was experiencing slow samba shares on my gigabit network and the solution was to remove the following socket options and let the TCP stack control it instead: *SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 *
Copying from a Windows based computer to the HDA with the socket options enabled would give me 10-15MB/s transfer speeds.
Without the socket options the transfer speeds were 30-35MB/s
There is more information on the following link: [[http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread162019.html]]
What surprises me is that I use the socket options for samba at work and noone has ever complained... time to check that out!
