I've recently upgraded my home box from 8.2-PRE to 8.2-RELEASE and since
then I've been experiencing *abysmal* performance with samba.
We're talking transfer rates of say 50kbytes/s here, and I'm the only
client on the box.
I've seen here and there discussions about sendfile's support, and how
it is recommended to disable it in samba.
Now, the man tells us:
Default: use sendfile = false
On the other side, FTP and SFTP transfers are OK, at 20mbytes/s or so.
Find below a bit of info
workgroup = MYGROUP
server string = Samba Server
security = user
hosts allow = 192.168.0.1 192.168.1.1 fe80::1
load printers = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
# You may want to add the following on a Linux system:
socket options = SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = no
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = re0 lagg0
hide unreadable = yes
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
# Tune ZFS somewhat aye ?
nas# zpool status
status: The pool is formatted using an older on-disk format. The pool can
still be used, but some features are unavailable.
action: Upgrade the pool using 'zpool upgrade'. Once this is done, the
pool will no longer be accessible on older software versions.
scrub: none requested

So mmmm, sendfile disabled, ZFS pool not quite updated, good FTP/ssh
performance, horribad samba performance.
Does anyone have an idea of stuff I should be looking at ?
Again, this has only begun since I've upgraded from 8.2-PRE/RC3 to
