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




Hai, 

I did a few test from my print server on a Xen Server 7.2.x
Guest VM Debian 9, 1GB NIC, 15K SCSI raid 1 disk for the Xen server. ( and just 2 disks ) 
Filesystem all Ext4, default settings. 


- VM's on the same XEN Host small file, about 25Mb.
smbclient -U username@REALM //hostname.internal.example.com/users --directory username -c 'put src-amd64.tar.gz' -mSMB3
Enter username@REALM's password:
OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.6.8-Debian]
putting file src-amd64.tar.gz as \username\src-amd64.tar.gz (117504.1 kb/s) (average 117504.1 kb/s)

A bigger file 740Mb. 
smbclient -U  -U username@REALM //hostname.internal.example.com/users --directory username -c 'get someones.pst' -mSMB3
Enter username@REALM's password:
getting file \username\someones.pst of size 757810176 as someones.pst (175825.4 KiloBytes/sec) (average 175825.4 KiloBytes/sec)
Client/server are samba 4.6.8 in this test and are on the same Xen Server, so bit onrealistic..

- VM on the same XEN Host + Dedicated server
Test 2. ( 2 guest VMS and 2 Xen servers 7.2.x) 
Same command ( the 740Mb file,  -mSMB3  ) 
Server : samba 4.5.8 MEMBER: original Debian	Client : samba 4.6.8, own package:  
size 757810176 as someones.pst (89388.7 KiloBytes/sec) (average 89388.7 KiloBytes/sec)

Server : samba 4.6.8 DC: own package	Client : samba 4.6.8, own package:  
757810176 as someones.pst (86494.7 KiloBytes/sec) (average 86494.7 KiloBytes/sec)

Same but with SMB2 
757810176 as someones.pst (93029.4 KiloBytes/sec) (average 93029.4 KiloBytes/sec)

I still say, check you bonding and/or, test with only 1 of the bonded nics. 
And cleanup you smb.conf, remove all defaults etc. 


- Test 3. ( configured samba in VM, unconfigured samba in Dedicated hardware ) 
( smbclient -U  -U username@REALM //hostname.internal.example.com/users --directory username -c 'get someones.pst' -mSMB3 )
The Dedicated hardware, did not have samba, and just an apt-get install smblcient was done.
Copy from VM to dedicated hardware, VM-samba 4.6.8, D-hw samba 4.7.0 ( own package ) 
757810176 as someones.pst (102160.3 KiloBytes/sec) (average 102160.3 KiloBytes/sec)

Now, here is getting interesting. 

Test 3.1 -mSMB2 ( first time.) 
someones.pst (55894.9 KiloBytes/sec) (average 55894.9 KiloBytes/sec)
rm someones.pst 
Test 3.2 again with -mSMB2 
757810176 as someones.pst (102741.8 KiloBytes/sec) (average 102741.8 KiloBytes/sec)

Test3.3 multiple times again with -mSMB3 ( removed the pst file every time )
757810176 as someones.pst (52281.8 KiloBytes/sec) (average 52281.8 KiloBytes/sec)
757810176 as someones.pst (104291.0 KiloBytes/sec) (average 104291.0 KiloBytes/sec)
757810176 as someones.pst (102075.7 KiloBytes/sec) (average 102075.7 KiloBytes/sec)
757810176 as someones.pst (102019.4 KiloBytes/sec) (average 102019.4 KiloBytes/sec)

Test 3.4 multiple times again with -mSMB3 ( removed the pst file every time )
757810176 as someones.pst (96310.4 KiloBytes/sec) (average 96310.4 KiloBytes/sec)
757810176 as someones.pst (102485.7 KiloBytes/sec) (average 102485.7 KiloBytes/sec)
757810176 as someones.pst (100427.3 KiloBytes/sec) (average 100427.3 KiloBytes/sec)


So, my conclusion here, something funky, yes. 
And higher samba versions get better results. 

Why did i get 2 times an average ~52281.8 of KiloBytes/sec but mostly, high numbers. 
Normal log levels while testing, and nothing in the logs. 
I'll go dig deeper.. See if i can find something here, because these ~52281 should not be there.
