How do I setup SAMBA to get the best performance with OOo?


(Here is what Xavier Poirier did to improve performance of OOo clients running from a SAMBA share):

We have an installation of OOo1.1 on a network with a SAMBA share (for the clients) - a 10M network, so not the fastest.

For SAMBA I have found this (thanks to O'REILLY Online Catalog): (Appendix B) B.2 Samba Tuning.

Tuning options used:

  • We have a share with READONLY mode (which is 5-10% faster for OOo).
  • Put OPLOCKS "ON": this permits the client to "cache" the files.
  • Put LOGLEVEL to "1" instead of "0" by defaut.
  • Put BLOCSIZE to 2048 instead of 1024.

Later I will try others, (like IPTOS_LOWDELAY) if anyone tries it, I'm interested ...

The clients: for better performance, it seems that they must run the quickstarter of OOo: soffice.exe -quickstart.

The result is GOOD! The clients are much faster for opening OOo! We won about 30-40% performance I think with these parameters.
