Question Samba multiple pids

I have redhat 7.3 running on a dual 2.4 GHz xeon machine. I have samba configured and it seems to be working fine. My only problem is that when I check the status of the smb service it tells me that smdb has multiple pids. As the day progresses the list of pids gets longer. I don't see any errors in the log just samba starting and stoping. Any ideas??? Thanks in advance.

An smbd process gets started with every client connection.

Check/add these to your smb.conf file:

"pid directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks"

Mabey Samba can't kill the processes when a client disconnects if it can't find the PID associated. Just a guess.

You can also set:

"max smbd processes = 10"
