Are Samba and Solaris performing for you?
  If not, or if youre wondering about scalability, I'm in 
the middle of a project on performance monitoring and modelling
at work, and will happily look at people's sar files (Solaris
only at the moment).

  A good sample would be "sar -o `hostname`.raw 10 30" 
(10-second intervals, 30 samples ::= 5 minutes), taken
during a busy period. The resulting file is a compact binary
suitable for emailing around.
