Partly that, partly optimizations that made small
machines slower previous to 2.5.1, plus &$#$!! ufs.
They've killed a number of the sloths subsequently (;-))
I'm in the midst of testing ufs versus logging
ufs versus VxFS versus ext2fs: right now I can
**unequivically** recommend the Solaris 8 "logging"
option for SMB servers. This speed up directory
operations by safely logging metadata updates, then
applying them in elevator-algorithm order, not
I'll post a mini-report about dbench & -o logging
