sometimes I tunnel smb from the server to my machine. For this, I use
ssh -l claus -L 139:some.destination.server.com:139
on my client machine.
Everything works fine, however, somebody told me that transferring many or
large files through the Samba tunnel would cause heavy CPU load (compared
to a direct connection to the Samba server), because it needs to be
encrypted and decrypted.
To this, I have some questions:
(1) Where is the most CPU load when files are copied, at the server or
(2) Is the CPU load significantly higher?
Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
