Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same issues that I am.. it's related to Samba-3.0.22c and sockets / filehandles.

For some odd reason every couple days (~2 days) I have to restart the smbd daemon because it eats up 6000+ filehandles, just for sockets I assume (based on netstat output). At the point where it reaches 8000 some filehandles open, the system refuses to fork, forcing me to login as root on the console directly instead of via SSH.

My machine is a local / preferred master (smbd fights with XP Home clients because they want to be master browsers), with limited access to a few XP clients (<4 clients at any given point in time), plus an XBox using smbclient with XBox Media Center.

  public = yes
  hosts deny = shiina pinocchio

  create mask = 0775

The only changes that I've made to smb.conf between now and when I last accessed samba is that I've removed an unneeded share and removed guest advertisement for my shares (need password / username anyhow to login, so I figured I might as well..).
