🌐samba

Samba is an open-source software suite that provides file and print services for Windows clients. It's easy to use, secure, and highly customizable.

Samba is an open-source software suite that provides file and print services for Windows clients using the SMB/CIFS protocol. It allows Unix-based systems to share files and printers with Windows-based systems, and vice versa. Samba is a popular tool for network administrators and IT professionals, and is widely used in enterprise environments.

Samba provides a range of features and capabilities that make it a powerful tool for file and print sharing. It supports file sharing across multiple platforms, including Unix, Linux, macOS, and Windows. It also supports a wide range of protocols, including SMB, CIFS, and FTP, and provides support for both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

One of the key benefits of Samba is its ease of use. It is designed to be simple and intuitive to configure and manage, with a range of tools and utilities that make it easy to set up and maintain file and print services. Additionally, Samba provides a range of security features, including support for encryption and authentication protocols, that help to ensure the privacy and security of shared data.

Samba is also highly customizable, and can be extended with a range of plugins and scripts to provide additional functionality. For example, there are plugins available for integrating Samba with LDAP directories, for providing print services, and for integrating with other network services.

Despite its many strengths, Samba is not without its limitations. It can be challenging to configure in complex network environments, and may require advanced knowledge of networking and security concepts. Additionally, it may not be suitable for all file and print sharing scenarios, particularly those involving high-performance or high-throughput workloads.

In summary, Samba is a powerful and flexible tool for providing file and print services in a mixed-platform environment. Its ease of use, security features, and extensibility make it an essential tool for network administrators and IT professionals. While it may not be suitable for all file and print sharing scenarios, it is a valuable addition to any enterprise or organizational network.

Packages and Binaries:

ctdb

CTDB is a cluster implementation of the TDB database used by Samba and other projects to store temporary data. If an application is already using TDB for temporary data it is very easy to convert that application to be cluster aware and use CTDB instead.

CTDB provides the same types of functions as TDB but in a clustered fashion, providing a TDB-style database that spans multiple physical hosts in a cluster.

Features include:

  • CTDB provides a TDB that has consistent data and consistent locking across all nodes in a cluster.

  • CTDB is very fast.

  • In case of node failures, CTDB will automatically recover and repair all TDB databases that it manages.

  • CTDB is the core component that provides pCIFS (β€œparallel CIFS”) with Samba3/4.

  • CTDB provides HA features such as node monitoring, node failover, and IP takeover.

  • CTDB provides a reliable messaging transport to allow applications linked with CTDB to communicate to other instances of the application running on different nodes in the cluster.

  • CTDB has pluggable transport backends. Currently implemented backends are TCP and Infiniband.

  • CTDB supports a system of application specific management scripts, allowing applications that depend on network or filesystem resources to be managed in a highly available manner on a cluster.

ping_pong

Measures the ping-pong byte range lock latency

:~# man ping_pong
PING_PONG(1)             CTDB - clustered TDB database            PING_PONG(1)

NAME
       ping_pong - measures the ping-pong byte range lock latency

SYNOPSIS
       ping_pong {-r | -w | -rw} [-m] [-c] {FILENAME} {NUM-LOCKS}

DESCRIPTION
       ping_pong measures the byte range lock latency. It is especially useful
       on a cluster of nodes sharing a common lock manager as it will give
       some indication of the lock manager's performance under stress.

       FILENAME is a file on shared storage to use for byte range locking
       tests.

       NUM-LOCKS is the number of byte range locks, so needs to be (strictly)
       greater than the number of nodes in the cluster.

OPTIONS
       -r
           test read performance

       -w
           test write performance

       -m
           use mmap

       -c
           validate the locks

EXAMPLES
       Testing lock coherence

                 ping_pong test.dat N

       Testing lock coherence with lock validation

                 ping_pong -c test.dat N

       Testing IO coherence

                 ping_pong -rw test.dat N

ldb-tools

ldb is a LDAP-like embedded database built on top of TDB.

What ldb does is provide a fast database with an LDAP-like API designed to be used within an application. In some ways it can be seen as a intermediate solution between key-value pair databases and a real LDAP database.

libldb-dev

ldb is a LDAP-like embedded database built on top of TDB.

What ldb does is provide a fast database with an LDAP-like API designed to be used within an application. In some ways it can be seen as a intermediate solution between key-value pair databases and a real LDAP database.

This package contains the development files.

samba

Samba is an implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol for Unix systems, providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with Microsoft Windows, OS X, and other Unix systems. Samba can also function as an NT4-style domain controller, and can integrate with both NT4 domains and Active Directory realms as a member server.

This package provides the components necessary to use Samba as a stand-alone file and print server or as an NT4 or Active Directory domain controller. For use in an NT4 domain or Active Directory realm, you will also need the winbind package.

This package is not required for connecting to existing SMB/CIFS servers (see smbclient) or for mounting remote filesystems (see cifs-utils).
