Ubuntu Servers :: SAMBA Is Slow On Newer Machine?

Feb 26, 2011

It takes 45min to transfer 10MB from my laptop to my replacement server. It takes 1minute to transfer the same 10MB from my laptop to the old server.

All connections are equal. Both servers are plugged to the same router.

Details: I have decided to migrate away from my Proliant 1600 to a slightly newer less complex piece of hardware.

Both machines are LAMP installs. Both are setup to be maintained headless 99% of the time and gnome is launched from the command line only when it is needed.

The older machine has more things running on it than the replacement. The replacement has nothing running that the older machine does not have.

Old box runs Ubuntu 6.06 but was fully updated a month ago. Replacement box runs Ubuntu 10.10 and was fully updated just last night.

smb.conf was the same on both boxes other than the share locations. Reading trying to fix it myself, I did put some known speedup lines into the new box's smb.conf, but it did not make a noticeable difference.

Hardware:
Old box,
Proliant 1600 = 1998 small server tech. (weighs 50lbs w/o drives)
single 500mhz xeon (upgradable to 2 600mhz, though they are hard to find reasonably priced)
1GB SDRAM with ECC

[Code].....

It does not matter what share/drive/partition I transfer to on either machine. The result is always the same.

On the newer computer CPU usage rarely goes over 50% and it has not had to go into swap at all yet.

Ubuntu Networking :: File Server On 10.04 Machine - Slow Samba

May 22, 2010

I'm trying to set up a fileserver on my 10.04 machine, and access the files from Windows 7 via wifi. I can see everything alright, but the transfer speed to Windows never gets higher than 70KBps. Both computers can access the web at 800+KBps. I've also checked with an OS X machine on the same network, which was also extremely slow, so I'm fairly sure that the problem is on the server's side.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba PDC - Cannot Add Machine Accounts

May 4, 2010

I am unable to join a W2K or XP machine to a Samba PDC. I have tried to make this work on both 8.04 LTS and 10.04 LTS without success. Everything else works but I cannot add machine accounts "on the fly" using the "add machine script" as provided in the server guide. I have been able to make it work by enabling the root user but not as a user with admin privileges and sudo in the script. Despite multiple attempts including a new 10.04 install and following the instructions (in the 9.10 server guide) to the letter. Does anyone out there have a samba PDC actually running on Ubuntu and able to add machines on the fly without enabling the root account (i.e using SUDO in the script and a user from the admin group)?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Configuration - File Transfers Between The Machines Are Extremely Slow

Nov 1, 2010

1. When I'm not logged into the server, only the shares are visible on my Windows computer. Clicking on the share folder displays an error message. As soon as I log in at the server, the files within the shares become accessible on the Windows box.

2. File transfers between the machines are extremely slow. Watching the system monitor, there's a brief burst of network activity followed by 10-30 seconds of nothing...on a gigabit network, the effective transfer rate is ~120kbs. There's no other network activity going on that would account for this behavior.

Fedora Servers :: Samba Messages In Syslog - Allow Logging To The Standard Samba Logfiles

Mar 18, 2010

I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.

nmbd.* /dev/null
smbd.* /dev/null
winbindd.* /dev/null

For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd[3808]: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd[3808]: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.

Ubuntu :: Brub2 Slow - Single Disk Machine?

Jan 3, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 on a relatively old laptop and I find Grub is taking about 20 seconds to initially load before booting the system. The laptop only has a single 120GB hard drive, and I chose the "use entire disk" option when installing, so I do not have any fancy partitioning scheme.When the system boots I get the "LOADING GRUB" text displayed and then shortly after it just shows the flashing cursor with no text, and stays there for about 20 seconds. After that it finally starts loading the system.All the searching I have done only turned up solutions relevant to people with multiple hard drives. This was not an issue on Grub 1.

Ubuntu Networking :: Very Slow Samba Share Browsing From Mac

Jun 27, 2011

I'm running Mac OS on a home network that includes a Win 7 machine and a Ubuntu box (Ubuntu 11.04 (GNU/Linux 2.6.38-8-generic i686)). Connecting to, and browsing the shared drives I have on the Ubuntu box (which acts as my server) is extremely slow from the Mac, it seems that the icons especially take ages to load. I've found a few suggestions on the net that I've implemented to no avail i.e.
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=65536 SO_SNDBUF=65536
Are there any other settings I should play with, or is there an alternative to samba that will work faster on a mixed network and be compatible with everything?

Fedora :: Extremely Slow Machine

Jan 27, 2010

I run F12. Since some days my laptop has become very sluggish. In Mozilla, switching between the tabs takes like seconds instead of fraction of a second. Also minimizing and mximizing windows takes long. Switching between the windows too takes long. Now I can't see the cursor while typing this post. I disabled some services that start at the boot time. I'm posting a list of services that are on in the runlevel 5 as that's the one I use.

Ubuntu :: Samba Slow Writes To Server But Fast Reads

Jul 1, 2010

I have a fileserver running 10.04 server 64bit and samba. I connect it to my desktop which is 10.04 desktop 64bit.I have the server mounted on my desktop in fstab as://10.0.0.2/share /media/share cifs guest, uid= 1000.Up until 30 June 2010 it was all fine. Now when I write the server it is very slow e.g. 2Mbps though when I read I get >100Mbps so I think my network is still ok. If i use nautilus smb://10.0.0.2/share I can write at >100Mbps and also read at >100Mbps...So any ideas why the write speed via the fstab mount samba has started to go really slowly in the last couple of days?

Software :: Slow Transfer From SAMBA To Win7?

Aug 30, 2011

I've done this a million times, so sure it is something simple. I just set up a file server with three drives. One is small and faster that houses all the system files. Then the other two are slower but larger (WD Green: variable 5,400-7,200 RPM) drives in RAID0 then encrypted using Blowfish 256-bit. Hence the performance double then hit below in the buffered reads.

Code:
Debian-Server-023 ~ # hdparm -tT /dev/sda
/dev/sda:
Timing cached reads: 1650 MB in 2.00 seconds = 825.44 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 234 MB in 3.02 seconds = 77.41 MB/sec
Debian-Server-023 ~ # hdparm -tT /dev/md0

Networking :: Slow File Transfers Using Samba?

Feb 2, 2010

I am running Samba on a debian Lenny box on a wireless home network. I find that file transfers to the samba share are very slow. It takes over a minute to copy a 40MB file to the linux box, but only 20 seconds to copy the same file to a windows XP box on the same network.

Anyways, I could use a little direction on how to proceed with this, I'm really not sure where to start,

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid: Samba Causes Very Slow Shutdown (eventually By Timeout)?

Sep 11, 2010

Samba doesn't seem to disconnect on shutdown except by timing out, causing a loooong Lucid shutdown. (I can disconnect manually before shutdown by unmounting the Samba shares, and shutdown is then very fast.) Apparently Network Manager is somehow involved. I've installed a NM shutdown Samba script which works for the first user account, but not for the second user account (which was created and then put into the admin group).

Debian Configuration :: Access And Connecting To SAMBA Are Too Slow

Mar 29, 2016

Let me introduce myself, my name is Carlos Alegría from Chile and I'm System administrator for a educational Institute. We use samba+ldap, for login accounts and file sharing but we not use samba with PDC.

Long time ago at the 2009 year, I was Installing the same system and this worked perfectly. But on our summer the hard disk of server has broken, so i was need installing all the system again. So the problem is with SAMBA, when i connect to the network resource, this is to slow, and when i try transfer files are slow.

My sistem is on Debian 8 Jessie and the Samba Version is 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb

Code: Select all[global]
   workgroup = LABORATORIO
   netbios name = Shinigami
   server string = debian

Ubuntu Networking :: VPN Client And Samba/SSH Server On One Physical Machine?

Jun 3, 2010

I'd like to access a samba/SSH server which itself is connected to a VPN Server, therefore acting as a VPN Client. As soon as the VPN Connection is established, samba and ssh connections to this VPN Client get a timeout. But not all of them.

To get a better understanding I made an overview. The first one is a general network overview, without any VPN Connection, the second one with the VPN Connection established.

Network Overview without VPN
I can access the server in several ways:
*From the router via ssh (router runs ipcop with busybox)
*From the laptop via ssh (putty via Windows 7)
*From the laptop via samba
*From the internet via ssh (port forwarding to the ssh server)

Everything is working as it should.

Now the server that runs ssh and samba service connects to a VPN Server on the Internet, this is also working fine. Now it gets weird. The only samba/SSH connection that is still working is ssh directly from the router to the server. Everything else gets a timeout:
*From the laptop via ssh (putty via Windows 7)
*From the laptop via samba
*From the internet via ssh (port forwarding to the ssh server)
Network Overview with VPN active

Why is that? It seems from the little understanding I have of vpn and networking, that incoming packages (like samba request from the laptop) don't get send directly back over eth0 but over the vpn connection. This seems somewhat logic, BUT ssh from the router is still working. Why from the router and not from the laptop? I really can't get my head around it.

Configuration Overview

tldr; One Client acts as VPN Client and samba/SSH Server. As soon as the VPN Connection is established samba/SSH stop working, but only partially.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.
