View Full Version : Genesis, Ariadne and smbfs
11-09-2005, 03:09 AM
I've tried using Genesis instead of Miami(DX) for smbfs with Ariadne, but there is practicaly NO speed increase, maximum send/receive is about 200Kb/300Kb ('060, OS3.5, Genesis from OS3.9, Dopus5, PIV)..
How have you guys managed to get more than 600Kb/sec ?

Please explain how "to not use smb". Thanks

goto GenesisPrefs>Options>Advanced and set
"TCP buffer size" to 16384 for both Send/Receive.
ah . .and rise the Cluster size to 2048
Hi, I tried Diskspeed against a Samba share on my Amiga 4000 with a Apollo 4040, AmiTCP 4.3 and a Ariadne II..
Here are the results (http://viten.mine.nu/DiskSpeed.Results).
And to sum it up:
Fastest Create file: 462,661 Bytes/sec
Fastest Write to file: 584,707 Bytes/sec
Fastest Read from file: 759,837 Bytes/sec

Did the same smbfs-test on my A4000 with a CSPPC 060/50MHz, AmiTCP 4.3 and a Ariadne (the first Ariadne). Here (http://www.megaburken.net/~patrik/DiskSpeed_smbfs.txt) are the results.
Summation of the results:
Fastest Create file: 484853 Bytes/sec
Fastest Write to file: 633963 Bytes/sec
Fastest Read from file: 880334 Bytes/sec
The performance of the tcp/ip-stacks/applications on the Amiga will suffer a big performance penalty if exec.library is in chipmem and/or if the kickstart is not relocated to fastmem, so make sure that is not the case.

When using smbfs to mount shares located on a windows 2000 machine (most likely windows xp too) you get terribly bad create and write performance for all but the smallest requests, check these (http://www.megaburken.net/~patrik/DiskSpeed_smbfs_win2k.txt) results. The read performance is good for all sizes though.
