Hmm. Ok. Thanks.

For perfcounts I've got a specific design in mind that is
really minimal impact. Once per some interval each smbd
writes its statistics into a record of its own into a
mutexed tdb. On demand a net (or any other command) walks
that tdb (I want to add a lightweight traverse for that) and
summarizes its findings. I'm asked to do per share
statistics with some flexibility for expansion. For example,
in the future we might want to add more internal statistics
like "how many requests did we send to ctdb, and how long
did we have to wait". This would mean a third mechanism. We
could do that, but I'm not sure I like that.
