View Full Version : [ubuntu] Performance degradation after kernel update in 12.04 LTS

January 5th, 2014, 01:42 PM

I am running 12.04 LTS as a file server and a few other applications (mail, proxy, named, dhcpd ...)
Yesterday I experienced a dramatic performance degradation doing network access from Win clients. It way actually only a 10th of the usual performance. It affects smb transfers. Local disk access is fine.
After checking various things like network, client config etc. I reminded the recent kernel update to 3.8.0-35. rebooting to 3.8.0.-34 gave me the original performance without any other config changes.

Is there a bug in the recent upgrade or is it a feature I have to configure? What should I look for?
