B. Samba Performance Tuning

This appendix discusses various ways of performance tuning and system sizing with Samba. Performance tuning is the art of finding bottlenecks and adjusting to eliminate them. Sizing is the practice of eliminating bottlenecks by spending money to avoid having them in the first place. Normally, you won't have to worry about either with Samba. On a completely untuned server, Samba will happily support a small community of users. However, on a properly tuned server, Samba will support at least twice as many users. This chapter is devoted to outlining various performance-tuning and sizing techniques that you can use if you want to stretch your Samba server to the limit.
