Hi,

do you start Samba manually?

Normally this is done via inetd, by the entries

netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/nmbd nmbd

nmbd is only needed for name resolution, e.g. to aid in populating the Windows "Neighborhood" display, or if you use your Samba server as a WINS server/proxy or if you want it to act as a local Master Browser.

Resource consumption of nmbd cannot easily be restricted, as far as I know, but if you don't need the mentioned functionality you can avoid using it at all.

To stop smbd/nmbd just kill them. Windows clients will try to reconnect at their next access attempt, which will succeed when smbd is up again.
