Subject: [gentoo-user] Strange samba behavior, go figure.
Date: Mon, 25 Jul 2005 17:46:55
I'm running a fresh install of gentoo, kde 3.4, etc.. samba is installed, kde 
runs nicely, lisa is running, and i can list the smb directories on my 
network easily.  I've got a full gigabit network setup, and every day I play 
media files over my network using the smb protocol from my server over to my 
ummm "modfied game console", which only has a 100mb card in it, of course.  
The media file play just fine, no problems.  Transfer speeds on the rest of 
my network, to and form the sever, and to and from other computers, and great 
and consistant with a gigabit network.

Problem is, when copying files in KDE from anywhere in my network to my gentoo 
box, speeds are at about 95 k/sec!  Awful speeds.. i'm perplexed by this 
issue.  Kernel is obviously configured properly, and as far as I can tell my 
network card is operating at 1000x.  

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Adam.
