samba slows down system dramatically


Hi all

Does anyone have any quick pointers as to why Samba is slowing down my FC4 (64) dramatically whenever its active (ie active windoze client connection)? Even when the connection is not actively being used?

My samba config is pretty much right out of the box.

My random guess is that theres something telling the network card to spend far too much time and resources listening... if so, I guess that's a netstat to identify... and what's the cure?

Any help would be appreciated (new to linux... )

Cheers

Three suggestions:

1. "netstat -a" (which you already anticipated)

2. "top"
<= IS THE SYSTEM CPU-BOUND (POSSIBLE) OR I/O BOUND (MUCH MORE LIKELY)?
IN EITHER CASE, WHICH PROCESSES APPEAR TO BE THE "BIGGEST CULPRITS"?

3. "lsof"
<= IS THE PROBLEM CORRELATED WITH SOME KIND OF RESOURCE LEAK?

You might also want to run Windows Performance Monitor on your Microsoft host:
<= Perhaps the actual culprit is on the Windows side
(Samba might actually be an innocent victim of something on the Windows side of the house).

'Hope that helps .. PSM
