slow LAN speed
Posted on 2007-07-22
This morning i found that my outlook pst file stored in samba server isn't accessible. After i restart samba file server, i found that the LAN speed is really slow. Transfer a 20 MB file take about 5 min. So i just power cycle the switches and the speed is bring up to about 1 min.
The path between samba file server is just two switch away. I test transfer speed on the machine directly connected to first switch of file server, the speed is all right (about 5 sec). So there isn't anything wrong on the software side but more on the switches? i change the switches as well but it is still slow... Can anyone help me on that?
[samba file server] -> switch1 -> switch2 -> switch 3
**switch 3 actually present a group of switches. All pc behind switch group 3 are slow down alot.
** pc behind switch1&2 are about the same speed.
ps: the switch we have just some soho type 8 port home switch with no management interface.
