Description Darwin H. Webb 2006-10-26 11:59:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Copying files from FC6 to Windows share is extra slow (about 6% of the 100 Mib 
band width used.
gnome-vfs-deamon is using >60% of the cpu,
naulilas is using 30%.
A 3.3 GB file takes 1 hour and 40 minue.
That is on about the speend of an old disk drive comtroller on a 386.
This has been going on for some time but I only saw the gnome-vfs-daemon in top 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-vfs-deamon does not have a packaage name?

How reproducible:
evry copy across net to windows share.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
extremely long file transfer times

Expected results:
65-80% of network bandwidth used at a fraction og the cpu being used.

This is quite possibly fixed by the gnome-vfs2-2.16.2-1.fc6 update. (There is a
100% cpu use bugfix in that.)

Can you verify?

I've got the same problem ...
I set up my home network and it is 100Mb/s (100Mb/s linksys router, 1x 1000Mb/s
XP SP2, 2x 100Mb/s XP SP2, 1x 100Mb/s FC6)
Network Performance is terrible on FC6: only about 1.7MB/s with 100% CPU IF i
use Nautilius to copy to / from other computers
HOWEVER, say if i use an XP computer and copy a file to or from other XP
computers or my FC6 computer, I'll get 10MB/s and around 5% CPU
I generally only yum update on mondays, so I'll be back if the problem continues.
hopefully everything will be fixed soon or is already fixed with latest release
Comment 5 Steve 2006-11-13 11:57:19 EST
NOT FIXED with latest updates
CPU usage is till excessive (not 80%)
and network utilization is now 1.8 MB/s

again this should be 5% and 10MB/s as I get in Windows XP SP2
Comment 6 Steve 2006-11-13 11:59:43 EST
oops a few typos above ...
CPU usage is no longer 100%, it is now 80% for me which is still way too much
