Do you have the raw data ? Or could you focus the graphs on journaled 
filesystems : the presence of ext2 flattens the differences between XFS, 
ReiserFS, etc.
Most Samba4 systems will probably run on a journaled filesystem, so I'd 
like to see if there are real differences or if they, more or less, have 
the same behaviour under load, with xattrs used.
