Sorry to ask here: maybe it's not the best place, but it might be a 
start (the client and server are both FreeBSD).

The server exports the same directory via NFS and via SMB.

I'd expect some performance penalty when using SMB, but:
"find /nfs_mounted_dir >/dev/null" takes more or less 1 minute;
"find /smb_mounted_dir >/dev/null" takes nearly 10 minutes.

Is this normal in your experience?

  bye & Thanks
