We're running samba 2.7a on hpux11i. Since HPUX added pread/pwrite
(PHKL_20349), performance is noticeably degraded copying serveral small
files to a share. For example, copying a folder from my local drive, 250mb
total, 265 files, 10bt to a samba share takes 95 seconds. If I edit config.
cache, change ac_cv_func_pwrite, ac_cv_func_pwrite64 to no, reconfig and
recompile, the copy only takes 35 seconds. The ratio is even higher accross
a faster link.
Anyone else experience this? I guess my next step is to pursue this with HP.
