Hello, I have a small home file server running Samba which serves 3 Windows 10 clients. Everything fine until about 2 weeks ago, but now there is often a delay of around 10-20 seconds when opening a file stored on the server. Browsing (using Windows Explorer) seems to be fine. From /var/log/samba/log.smbd I have
smbd version 4.16.0-git.227.931848a12abSUSE-oS15.9-x86_64
and the log file includes something similar to this entry against each of the affected files:
fsp_get_io_fd: fsp *...share-path-to-file...*] is a path referencing fsp
[2022/04/24 10:12:35.704497, 0] ../../source3/smbd/fd_handle.c:118(fsp_get_io_fd)
Does this mean anything to anyone?
Thanks for any pointers
It seems not. In fact it only appears to affect certain Windows applications - so far MS Office 2007 and Acrobat DC Reader. Opening even large text files in Notepad is instantaneous, as it was before. The Office suite hasn’t been updated in years, obviously (though the Acrobat is latest version).
I’ll have a look at the wireshark capture, though I’m a bit out of my depth. Thanks for the suggestions.
Good suggestion. Done that, and after trying a couple I have the same problem with the same files. So I think I need to try and narrow it down and find exactly which files are affected and what they have in common
