Speed up Samba file copying speeds
Authored by: TriNeuro on Nov 11, '05 09:27:54AM

And you're sure it's not just the samba configuration? Check the man pages for the "large readwrite" setting and you'll understand what I'm pointing towards. I commented on a older hint about this before, but the gist is to edit smb.conf and set: large readwrite = no in the global settings.

I'm not sure if this is still a problem in Tiger, but earlier releases had large readwrite set to yes by default, which is wrong until the system is fully 64-bit compatible.

Speed up Samba file copying speeds

There's no 'largerewrite' setting at all in my Tiger (10.4.3) config so I suspect they've fixed it.

Speed up Samba file copying speeds

Actually, it is the default setting for tiger's samba, if you do
$ testparm -vs |grep readwrite
you will see...
large readwrite = Yes
so, if you want that set to no, add the line to the general secion of smb.conf.

Speed up Samba file copying speeds

I added the 'large readwrite' directive to my Samba config and there was no noticeable change in speed.

I turned off delayed acks and my file copy speed jumped from ~50KB to ~180KB.

I'm using 100bT ethernet with a PowerBook.
