Improving CIFS Performance

On older ubuntu versions (eg. Ubuntu 10.04) cifs can be slow. The situation can be improved by doing the following

  1. Unmount all cifs shares
  2. rmmod cifs (and check that the module is gone)
  3. echo “options cifs CIFSMaxBufSize=130048” > cifs.conf
  4. mount with -o direct,rsize=130048,wsize=57344
