Re: [Samba] samba 4.x slow ...


is your scenario possibly using Windows SMB2 clients and a large/huge number of small files per directory? If so, please have a look here and see whether my issue might apply for you as well:


Hope this helps & best regards

we are running samba 4.4 on two machines as file servers.
Both are running a GFS (stornext). The storage is attached using 8G HBA.
You can get up to 800MB/s local speed. We are exporting the shares using 2x1GB and 2x10G. However the clients are only getting 40-50MB/s. With samba3 I think we had up to 80-90MB/s.
Using a 100MB/s link for the client we see 12-13MB/s (wire speed).
Using NFS (3) we see up to 120MB/s (GB). How can we improve the speed ?
How can we find the bottle neck ? (I tested already various samba versions (4.4{5,6}) without
any success.
