Increase redirector network performance


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.
