how to optimize samba performance?
I have installed a linux server, centos gui server with Raid1, his role will be only a file server. I installed samba and configured it. The file system is EXT3. the server got 4 gigs of memory.
There is a program in windows that writes files to the share.
I searched and i found that there is some commands that you add and they boost the performance. This is what i added to smb.conf
refresh = 1
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
read raw = No
write raw = Yes
max xmit = 131072
use sendfile = Yes
dead time = 15
getwd cache = Yes
otlocks = No
strict allocate = yes
I got complains that the writes are not fast enough. Before me another IT guy configured the file server and it was faster, what he told my customer that he changed some command of cache but i dont know exactly what he did. I have been asked to find how to boost the performance.
Please give me more commands to try to boost the performance of Samba or tell me if i need to change anything..
Thanks A Lot.
