Increase redirector network performance


In Windows NT / 2000 / XP, if you increase the number of buffers that the
redirector reservers for network performance, it may increase your network
throughput. Each extra execution thread that you configure will take 1k of
additional nonpaged pool memory, but only if your applications actually use
them. To configure additional buffers and threads, edit:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters
Name:
MaxCmds
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0-255
with default=15

Name: MaxThreads
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: set to
same value as MaxCmds

You may also want to increase the value of
MaxCollectionCount. This REG_DWORD is the buffer for
character-mode named pipes writes. The default is 16 and the range is 0 –
65535.
