Description Mike Liu 2015-01-30 08:56:58 UTC
Hello list, 

I setup Iometer to test AIO for 100% Sequential/Random read. 
If "Transfer Request Size" is more than or equal to 256 kilobytes,in the beginning the transmission is good. 
But 3~5 seconds later,the throughput will drop to zero. 
This symptom did not occur in Samba-4.0.13,but it occur after upgrading to Samba-4.0.14.
I found it works fine without the patches from Bug#10298.

Server OS: 
Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 LTS 

Version 4.1.6-Ubuntu 

SMB 2.0 

AIO settings : 
aio read size = 1 
aio write size = 1 
vfs objects = aio_pthread 

Client OS: 
Win 8.1 professional 64Bit 

Iometer Setting: 
Iometer 2006.07.27 
Worker : 8 
Max Disk Size (Sectors) : 16777216 
Outstanding I/Os : 128 
Starting Disk Sector : 0 
100% Sequential/Random read

I think this is resolved with 4.6.0 and higher by the following commits
