If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only the contents of the profiling shared memory area.
If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print the contents of the profiling shared memory area and the call rates.

is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified is 0.
The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of information about operations carried out.
Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.
Note that specifying this parameter here will override the

causes smbstatus to not check if the status data is valid by checking if the processes that the status data refer to all still exist. This speeds up execution on busy systems and clusters but might display stale data of processes that died without cleaning up properly.

The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
