:-)some of the things below (pick one or more or all), such as:
:-)- a brief description of your organisation.

An educational institute

:-)- what you use samba for (e.g as file servers; login servers; backup
:-)purposes or remote admin with smbclient or rpcclient).

File server, print server, Quota management (interesting hack!), CDROM

:-)- what version(s) of samba you are using.  if using a version from cvs
:-)please include date and tag.


:-)- what server(s), including the specification (OS, ram, hdd, network,
:-)rough estimate of mb/s throughput at peak load would be excellent if you
:-)can get it)

Total 2 NT servers

1 PDC -- PPro 200 NT4.0SP3, 10Mbps network, 4GB hdd 
1 BDC -- PII200, 64MB RAM, 10Mbps network, 2 GB hdd

We have to keep NT server to serve some licensing keys for softwares we
use. We also authenticate from NT. Other than that everything is on

total 5 servers running Linux+samba.

3 -- Dual PII 400, with 128MB RAM, 10Mb network, 500-600K/sec will be good
1 -- P100, with 32MB RAM, 10Mbps network
1 -- Dual P90, with 64MB RAM, 10Mbps network

about 75GB space total

:-)- how many users and in what database (private/smbpasswd; LDAP; MYSQL) and
:-)how many simultaneous users.

about 500 user accounts on an NT PDC. about 150-170 users during normal
office hours.

:-)- what sort of hosts connect to your servers.

Mostly NT4.0SP3, some Win95/98

Keep up the good work! I am mostly snooping this list for our future

:-)i should probably be advocating people to fill in the survey instead of
:-)this :)
:-)thank you!
