I am wondering why cp command of 72GB data from linux server to a mounted CIFS (windows) share works too slow? It takes more then 3 hours already.
Is the any way to see where the gap, bottleneck?
Both VM on XenServer 5.5 with 1GB NIC Linux VM RHEL5.5; 4GB RAM; 4 CPU; 8GB SWAP Windows VM Windows Server2008; 4GB RAM; 2 CPU
Are the two machines on the same ip subnet? - YES
What is the file structure like (lots of small files?) - YES
User mail boxes, /etc, /var/log what is the disk subsystem that these vm's are using? - VM are seating on iSCSI virtual disk storage which is SAN with iSCSI interface was formated with LVM support by itself.
dd if=/dev/zero of=file.txt bs=1024k count=5000 - took about 5 minutes to create and copied it in a secs.
Looks like I have some problems with network interfaces.
