Accelerate twice the copying transfer rate for client GNU/Linux from SMB server share (Microsoft Windows).
|Summary||Linux kernel smbfs acceleration patch|
|State||Ready to use. Maintained.|
|Programming language||C patch|
Simple patch to increase virtual block size of SMB filesytem in Linux
kernel. It improved tranfer rate of
cp command almost
by a factor of 2 (approx. 700KB -> 1300KB or something
like about it) in the local conditions. Now
cp should be as fast
cat redirected across networked filesystems.
Unfortunately the blocksize causes different (4 times smaller) sizes
du command as it measures it in blocks
and not in kilobytes as some people think.
