Hi All,

I use samba in my mips platform. The tcp performance is about 450Mbps. But
the samba perfomance is only 180Mbps(Mips-->PC) and 150Mbps(PC-->Mips). I 'd
like to ask if it is normal and how I can improve the the performance of
samba server.The version of my using samba is 3.0.30.
The following is the state of vmstat during the test.
