Hi: I made the test today and i got awesome results. One of my harddrives (RAID 1 ) goes offline. I made the test with only 1 disk trasfering a 1.7GB file trought FTP and samba. Samba got about 24mb/s and ftp got about 45mb/s from the single disk both. Samba takes the twice the time than ftp, it is my bottleneck anyone has any patch/suggestion to improve the samba performance on freebsd? Thanks :) -- mmm, interesante..... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
