Hi, I have a problem with huge directories (this means several thousand files). First it is extremly slow to list them. The droboshare is connected via a GB ethernet, so this should not be the problem.
When logged in via SSH and using “ls” the listing is fast, no problems.
So, I expect that it’s SMB that is slowing down things significant.
And I have the effect that directory changes are not shown in Finder (even when reloading) as they happen. Sometimes it takes several minutes or some other actions before the directory list is updated.
Any idea how I can speed things up? And no, using directories with fewer entries is not an option. Can SMB be tuned?
