Samba3 performs excellend nowadays. You should have no trouble at all serving 20 workers. In my setup (7.1-release/amd64/dual x2 3800 amd cpu/gigabit) smb generates only 3-5% cpu load when reading at 50MB/sec.
below 10% CPU when reading 8MB/s through fast ethernet link on PIII/500
I would also recommend running swat (zee /etc/inetd.conf), it can really help creating a nice and tailored smb.conf file for you via a webinterface.
i would rather recommend man smb.conf _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
