SMB slow, Samba slow, or something else slow?

Post by Timothy J. L » Sat, 01 Nov 1997 04:00:00

On a MS Windows NT 4.0.3 (service pack 3) computer, access through
Samba 1.9.15p8 to a Solaris 2.5 file server is slow.  Compiling
something that is on the file server's disk takes almost three
times as long as compiling the same thing on the local disk.

Solaris 1 and 2 computers do not notice such a large difference
between compiling files on local disks and files accessed through
NFS on the same file server.

Is the slowness due to the SMB protocol, Samba, or something else?

1. Tin newsreader, slow slow slow

err, this may, or may not be off topic.  i am using:

tin pre-1.4 release 19990927 ("Nine While Nine")
[UNIX] (c) Copyright 1991-99 Eain Lea. InterNetNews NNRP server INN 1.7.2 08-Dec-1997
ready (posting ok).

and, yes, i do attend "xxx" univeristy. i never miss a class!

i'm just a lowly user :)  anyhow, when it reads a newsgroup, it has a
status type thing where it says 145674/4564324 like that.  it seems to
get a _huge_ portion right off the bat, then it slows to increments of
fifty.  i _could_ install tin on my linux laptop, but space is ver
limited.  and, what would be the point? i still need a connection to the
net. as a user, i use the version on my schools sun computers.  can
i get tin to work faster at bringing up a newsgroup?

otherwise, tin is neato :)
