Speed up Samba network access

By | November 11, 2008

Dropt these lines into your smb.conf file to speed up Samba access. Find the Global area section and paste them underneath:

read size = 65536

read prediction = true

socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

Depending on your network card and configuration, this should speed up your LAN transfers at least tenfold.

    Really useful tip… I’ve used other parameters for optimizing, but this ones make samba even more faster, thank you!

    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 Worked just fine but where do I put the other two line samba does not recognize them.
