Slow Response to Query directory located on ISCSI SAN
Posted on 2007-11-14
When I query a folder from an XP workstation to a mapped drive on an ISCSI SAN the response time is really slow. Using Ethereal I am seeing alot of SMB traffic and it takes approximately 45 seconds for the folder information to be viewed.
The typical information is alot of QUERY_PATH_INFO request and response by the workstation and the server using ISCSI.
I'm getting alot of complaints from users and need to know where to start looking as I can't decipher the captured packets.
