Samba - When is "socket options = SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192" Nessesary?

I was told this performance increasing option wasn't necessary in new versions of samba or linux kernel. Is this true? if so when?

Well, I don't use these settings and have no performance problems with Samba, at least under small loads, don't know how it would behave under high usage.

I would do some testing without the so_sndbuf / so_rcvbuf set and then with it set and then possibly with higher values.

I'm not sure how you would measure it - what program or utility to us for measurement.

I suppose a good 'ol stop watch would work.
