we use a Compaq SP700 with dual PII @ 450MHz with 512 MB RAM. Kernel 2.2.15
w/ SMP, Samba 2.0.7. We have a total of 3100 Clients, parameter "dead time"
is set to 60 min. There are around 180 concurrent connections. Typically 2
to 5 users are transferring data at the same time. Typically the load is
between 0.6 and 1.4.
The more users are transferring data at the same time the more a SMP machine
will help.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards / Saludos cordiales

A SMP kernel does'it grow performance of a samba server?

Can somebody gives a tipical size-scale for a samba server in a two field

    configuration <=> performances needed
where performance is probably function of # users, average used files, bytes
flows, ... (i don't really know ...?)
