Speed up Samba file copying speeds
Authored by: mistersquid on Nov 11, '05 07:27:56AM

Since updating to 10.4.3 (though my troubles may be unrelated to that), I've noticed that AFP performance has dropped dramatically. I have my music library AFPd over the Internet with a 450 Mb upstream. This used to be fine for iTunes, but after updating the remote machine to 10.4.3, iTunes does nothing but stutter.

I'm not in front of that machine to test whether this hint helps, but I'm hoping. Looking at the preference that gets set, I'm imagining that the delayed acknowledgments over TCP affect more than just Samba.

Are you able to ssh into the mac with the AFP server? If you have admin privileges, you could then run the second command and get the same effect.
