Bit of an odd question, and very hard to search on. What I am doing is copying a file from a mech disk to an ssd on an ubuntu 16.04 system, via smb shares.
The copy works, but it will run at about 80-90Mb/s for a while then drop to zero. It will soon pick up and start again.
I would like to know of any way to determine why this is occurring and if possible fix it. Or suggest a better method than smb.
I have checked the smb log and it is empty.
