When 1.5 was released, I setup a new Samba server. About every week or
two, I upgraded to the latest 1.5-release. Sometime in the last month or
so, Samba would stop serving files and I would get the message to increase
Sometimes it is OK, sometimes it stops transferring packets. I have just
started trying to get a good network trace when it fails.
I have been upgrading hardware in the last month also to see how much
throughput I could get from the file server. I have upgraded from ISA to
PCI ethernet nics, a 10 Mbit hub to 100 Mbit switch. So upgrading software
has not been the only change on my systems and network.
