Asynchronous Samba - Jeremy Allison, Google

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Samba project code is moving towards an asynchronous model (with threads hiding under the covers) to improve scalability and performance. Learn how and why this transition is being done, and what effects this has on implementing the advanced features of the SMB3.1 protocol inside Samba.

This talk is for developers who use Samba to create storage products around SMB3.x, testers who work on Samba-based storage products, and storage system architects who need to tune storage products for maximum performance.
