The status page serves a limited purpose. First, it allows control of the Samba daemons.
The key daemons that create the Samba server environment are smbd, nmbd, and winbindd.
The daemons may be controlled individually or as a total group. Additionally, you may set
an automatic screen refresh timing. As MS Windows clients interact with Samba, new smbd processes
are continually spawned. The auto-refresh facility allows you to track the changing
conditions with minimal effort.
Finally, the status page may be used to terminate specific smbd client connections in order to
free files that may be locked.
