I'm pretty new to Glusterfs currently doing some performance testing and 
I have a big performance gap between NFS and Samba.

I have a replicated volume and a Samba share on a mounted Gluster volume 
(setup according to 

Ie have several million small image files (around 100-200KB each) which 
should be copied to the Gluster volume. If
I'm copying the files now from a windows client to the Samba share and 
I'm getting a write throughput around 10 Mbps.

If I access the same Gluster volume via Windows NFS client the write 
throughput is around 35 Mbps.

I tried the settings according to this post:
but still the throughput is too low.

I would be happy if we could get the same performance with Samba and NFS.

Any ideas how to tune it?
