I got samba all configured and running how I need, but I'm having a performance problem.
I'm getting about 7 megs a second sustained transfer rate on a large file (in either direction), but for many smaller files, it's a lot worse.
For example, I transferred starcraft and winamp5 from the SMB server to a winxp machine and that took about 1.75 times as long as to transfer them back later. What might be the cause of a series of small files to be slow, and what can I do about it? (I mainly am dealing with small files)
I've tried experimenting with values for SO_RCVBUF and SO_SNDBUF, among other things, but haven't come up with anything that works better.
Thanks in advance.
