RE: [Samba] Can't kill smbd process
Sorry for not responding in a long time, I been really busy these days.
To kill the process, I use "kill -9 <pid of the smbd process>" as root =
it do nothing, no error message and the process still run.
I found the possible source of this problem : each night we have a =
server (running opensuse 10.3) that connect to the file server (mount -t
cifs ...) copy the files on his own hard drive, umount the share and =
start transferring the files on tapes. When I check the swat status page =
the morning and "ps aux | greo smbd", I got like 20 process or more =
for the backup server file transfer and all those process can't be kill =
"sudo kill -9 pid". From this point some smbd process, that are created =
normal user use, can't die either and keeps lock on files. One night, I
shutdown the backup server and the next day every thing was working
normally, no unkillable process.

TCP_NODELAY is still usefull and has a noticeable improvement in
responsiveness. SO_RCVBUF=3D8192 and SO_SNDBUF=3D8192 are outdated and
actually make things worse if running with a 2.6 kernel (they do help if
running on a 2.4 kernel). But I too, am sure changing these will not
fix your problem (but probably will improve network performance).
How are you killing the open files? With "kill -9"? I kill locked,
open files by finding the pid with lsof and then close it with "sudo
kill -9 pidnumber". I've never had kill -9 fail me and I imagine you
would have to have serious kernel problems if kill -9 failed to kill a

I've seen written here many times that the TCP options are old/no longer
needed. Not that I expect that removing them will fix anything.
Seems to me you have an awful lot things defined specifically there. I
don't know how those relate to the defaults. Or is that testparm -v
