Hi,

We have implemented a new AIX 5.3, P55A using Samba...we have about 70
users online most of the day. We assign a particular Samba share to
everyone when they login so it shows up in their Windows Explorer. Is
it standard that we see so many "smbd" processes running when I do a "ps
-ef"? Here is a portion of the output below. We have been experiencing
lag at times during the day, we are trying to look all options, like
network issues, circuits, routers etc. I was wondering if this was the
norm for Samba. Sorry for the email being so big.:

# ps -ef
