Description James Peach 2003-11-12 16:23:41 UTC
SGI documents /etc/init.d/samba as accepting a 'profile' argument
as well as 'start' and 'stop'. In practice, this is quite useful
for switching between running the profile and no-profile versions
of smbd and nmbd (assuming you compiled separate versions like the
SGI distribution does!). Unfortunately, despite the doco, this 
hasn't actually been implemented.

Implement 'profile' argument.

This patch implements the 'profile' argument by running
{smbd,nmbd}.profile if they are present, and running
smbcontrol to enable profile data collection. If the .profile
executables aren't found, the regular ones are run, so this
shouldn't cause any problems for people not running the official
SGI packaging.

implement profile option

This patch implements the profile argument to /etc/init.d/samba
but also signals pmcd so that PCP stats are available immediately.

Update title.

support smbd profiling

I was asked to make samba profiling permanently chkconfig'able. This
patch incorporates the previous semantics, with the addition that
if sambaprofiling id chkconfig'ed on, then 'start' will start the
profiling binaries.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
