I have made a torrent client/file server with raspberry pi 2, using a 16 GB SD card class 10 for raspbian and a 16 GB USB to store files that i transferred with samba. Pi is connected with LAN cable with the speed of 680 KB/sec.

During the transfer, the smbd daemon is using 1-2% of CPU and has up to 500 MB of RAM free, any ideas?

  • Make sure you are using the latest Samba 2 - There are massive performance fixes in there. – Piotr Kula May 12 '15 at 8:35

Check the output of ifconfig to see what the Ethernet is connecting at, also run drive performance tests to see what your read write speed on your USB drive is.

  • Test result is: 655360000 bytes (655 MB) copied, 81.2599 s, 8.1 MB/s, seems ok – hellb0y77 Apr 11 '15 at 20:19
  • And ifconfig? I wonder if you're connecting slow. Also, check ping/tracert times to the other machines. Do you have any other machines on the network you can test with? – Doug Edey Apr 12 '15 at 0:02

I solved, the problem is the powerline adapter. With a direct cable it's work perfectly (8-10 MB/sec). Thanks for your patience and sorry
