I had a chance to do one set of runs on a large
system used for NetBench testing with 48 clients.
The smbtorture curve had a different maximum
but a very similar shape, offset by a constant
term. This implies that smbtorture is
weakly predictive in the mathematical sense,
and a valid simulation of the NetBench load
in the practical sense.
I suspect we can approximate NetBench with
N = (a * S) + c
for some value of a and c
a and c will vary somewhat with site/configuration
