Wierd Samba Problem with Network Speed (using SK98lin driver)
It seems that when I try to copy a file from a Windows Share to Linux I get really crappy speeds (~100KB/s if I'm LUCKY). However, I noticed that if I start a second transfer my speeds are normal (6MB/s each or so on a gigabit lan).
I have a linksys gigabit ethernet card on this machine (using skyline's driver module)
below is from my dmesg when I active my network card:
duplex mode: full
irq moderation: disabled
my settings on my windows box are:
full autonegotiation and flow contrl on.
I also do NOT have IPv6 enabled
and just incase I put these in my /etc/modprobe.conf:
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
Of course, if I'm on my windows box and copy files to Linux my speeds are normal
Any ideas what could be causing this?
Yesterday I also tried setting up an FTP server on my XP machine and downloading to my linux machine. The speed was normal (13MB/s+) So this seems to be a SAMBA only problem.
*follow up #2*
I Finally found at least a partial solution
by typing in: ifconfig eth0 mtu 9000
my transfer speeds went from 100-300KB/s to 3MB/s
One thing I also set was (in my smb.conf):
max xmit = 65535
You'll need both of these settings.
However, I noticed this works only when I go to my share via "smb://MACHINENAME/SHARENAME" and transfer my file. If I go to my share via a cifs filesystem mount, it goes back to 100-300KB/s. ARG!!!!
I'm using Fedora Core 3 and version 3.0.10-1-fc3. I just downloaded version 3.0.11 and hopefully this will work. By the way, in my previous post (above), that solution stopped working for me now. Everything's back to 100-300KB/s :(
whatever they did in v 3.0.11 WORKED !!! 6 - 11MB /s :)
but the minute i do more than 1 simultaneous transfer it slows down to 1.5-2MB/s each :(
oh well, I'll take 1 fast xfer over 2 slower ones any day
