I’ve been going bonkers the past few days trying to get my SMB share to go above 1MiB/s on Manjaro. I’ve tested the connection on native Windows and I can easily get 80MiB/s from my Freenas server. I’m also able to exceed 10MiB/s when downloading Steam games from the internet, and from my Steam cache hosted on the same server. The best performance increase so far has come from mounting the SMB share via SMB4K, however that usually just sits around 1.7MiB/s.
I’ve attempted to edit my smb.conf file, as per eggplant.pro/blog/faster-samba-smb-cifs-share-performance however that mostly just gets the connection to stabilize around 1MiB/s rather than fluctuate. I’m currently on the most updated version of Manjaro KDE Plasma.
