CIFS - browsing large directories

Hello,

Whenever I try to browse a directory that has 1000+ items using CIFS, Alfresco server takes too long to load all the data (about 10 seconds).

First thing I tried  was to increase Java Heap to 1Gb (set JAVA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx1024m -Xss64k -server). Then I turned the ehcache debug on and did some tweaking on ehcache.xml.  Results were better but still too slow.

Now I'm wondering what else can be done to increase the performance on my server. I read in another topic (http://forums.alfresco.com/viewtopic.php?t=2354) that JLAN Server has 30% increased performance over built-in CIFS code in Alfresco? Is this still the case? Anything else I could try?

I also noticed that CPU usage goes up to 90% at those give times (70% java, 20%mysql). I could upgrade my hardware but something tells me it's not just a hardware limitation.

System info:
Alfresco Community 2.1/Tomcat/MySQL/Windows Server 2003
Intel Core 2duo 2.4Ghz/2Gb RAM/2x160Gb Stata 2 - Raid 0
10 concurrent users, 20k items on repository

Thanks in advance,
Pedro Son
