Just sped up my Samba install

Postby LeeNukes » Mon Feb 14, 2011 8:52 pm

So, I noticed that my Samba appeared to be lagging, could be other issues yet as I've not tested the whole network but as a result I looked into speeding up Samba.

I found this site: http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t- ... fer-speeds

Which although talks about speeding up a Western Digital MyBook, it worked for me.

Here are the speed increases I got that I recorded:

First upload without any tweaks:
Code: Select all
putting file 100MB as \100MB (7926.3 kb/s) (average 7926.3 kb/s)


Change to file as described in guide:
Code: Select all
putting file 100MB as \100MB (10725.9 kb/s) (average 10725.9 kb/s)
putting file 100MB as \100MB (10340.3 kb/s) (average 10340.3 kb/s)


Correction by removing refresh = 1 and changed otlocks to oplocks as thats what it should have been in the guide.
Code: Select all
putting file 100MB as \100MB (11413.3 kb/s) (average 11413.3 kb/s)
putting file 100MB as \100MB (11079.9 kb/s) (average 11079.9 kb/s)



Also, watch where it says put 100M as it should be put 100MB as thats the name of the file you create.
