You buy what is supposed to be top of the line NAS drive, and you discover that the developers in WD turned nice hardware to a piece of !@#! useless machine.
Not only the nicely designed web portal is unresponsive, but your smbd is now so slow, that your windows is freezes for minutes while browsing directories.
I tried the following commands, even made them part of my bash startup script.
I can’t stress it enough, WD… you need to disable or give the user ability to disable this nonsense!!
- Add a UI option to the apache portal to disable these secondary services.
- Disable the indexing features by default
- Prioritize Samba process. Top priority for the drive should be to be
usable as a NAS drive!!!
