A little known option of smbtorture is "--unclist". You can use this
to get any of the smbtorture commands that use the
torture_create_procs() function to connect to multiple different
hosts. For example, you can run NBENCH against a cluster by creating a
file containing lines like this:


and if you run NBENCH with 100 clients, it will connect to each host
25 times.

It's quite useful for simple cluster testing.
