Samba connectios

Hello, Can someone please provide me with some information regarding samba and how it connects to the server?
I have some performance issues I believe it may be coming from people closing their samba connection but the process still remaining on the server, would that be a possible explanation?
Thanks a bunch.

Re: Samba connectios

hi,
i would suggest you to remove SO_KEEPALIVE
in socket options and try again.

Jamie-

Here is a link to the Using Samba book by O'Rielly. there is a section (chapter 3.3) that talks about SMB/CIFS. I don't know if that is what you are looking for or not.

http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/samba/chapter/book/ch03_03.html

also, you should be able to go the the gui interface and see if the shares are still connected or not.
