Our 10.8.5 Xsan 3 SAN is reshared by an Xserve via AFP and SMB. Currently AFP performance is as good as 100MB/sec for read and write but SMB performance on Windows clients is terrible, with only about 40MB/sec read and <10MB/sec write.
Is anyone else resharing via SMB to Windows clients? How is your performance?
Some additional notes:
-Not isolated to our reshare server. I setup a test SMB reshare off the backup MDC with the same results.
-OS X SMB clients perform better than Windows - as good as 60-70MB/sec read and write.
-Definitely Xsan related - shares off the boot volume SMB performance is fine.
