samba is eating to much of server's resources


I run Samba 3.0.0-15 on Linux ( FEDORA CORE 1) and it acts as a DOMAIN
CONTROLER for our small networks which comprises of 4 WINDOWS XP
PROFESSINAL PCs. But we have a problem with samba eating to much of
servers resources. If I reboot the server it cures the problem but soot it
appears again. Anyone knows what might be a problem?

Thanks to all.

I had a somewhat similair problem whit samba 3 a while back(on a small home-server, that is )
Samba was running very slow, browsing the shared folders was really slow, and it was using quite a lot of resources.

In the syslog there where a lot of messages whit RT_SIGNAL_LEASE failures from samba.
After some browsing around I found out that putting
Code:
kernel oplocks = no
in your smb.conf fixes these messages, and samba is running at normal speed now.

this MIGHT be these case here, too.
