mmmmh, maybe not so easy to find ...
What i should normally do is this :
a) First i check my "smb.conf"-File. This is normally under
"/usr/local/lib" or "/usr/local/samba/etc" or any other place where your
"smbd" is looking for it (depending on your version an build-config of
b) Then i try to activate "debug level = 1" (if not already active) and
remember the value for the "logfile"-parameter (normaly under /var/samba
or /usr/local/samba/var, but maybe at some other place, depending on you
version and build of samba) .
If you have plenty of PC's in your LAN, then a good idea is to put "%m"
into the path of "logfiles". Normally this should be active in V2.2.1.
This help's a lot later if you have to do a logfile-analysis of a
c) Then i restart all "smbd" processes (maybe the "nmbd" too)
d) Then i look at the log-files an chcek which PC's are making the most
"traffic" on samba ...
If "debug level = 1" is not enough, you can try up to "9" and start over
Hope this help you a little bit,
