Just a side point on cifs performance and application mix...
Jeff Katcher (of NetApp) ran Postmark on some of his machines, and
the application mix was such that smb was noticeably slower than
nfs on the same machine.
If we choose an inappropriate mix, we'll be benchmarking for something
the protocol is optimized against (:-))
See http://www.netapp.com/technology/level3/3022.html: .gif file of
my spreadsheet attached: this is what happens when you measure
the performance of a fileserver with the load from a mail/news spool,
which is what PostMark simulates.
