Installed a new Rocky server earlier in the year running Samba (4) that comes with the release at the time.
They use the MS Reckon accounting package in a shared folder. (Reckon is like Quickbooks or Myob).
Despite playing with oplocks (on, off) they report lagging for users.
The new server replaced the same model/setup that was on a CentOS 6 server in the same Samba environment… which did not lag and from what I can glean oplocks may have been off by default.
I have seen this issue with Myob some years back at another site and they ended running Myob off a Windows PC as it didn’t have the same slowness . (I was brought in to set up an automated backup to the Linux server - I used Samba client to do this.)
I will look to elevating this via whatever Samba support is out there but thought the more eyes that see this might have resolved this seemingly known but allusive problem.
