the performance of a samba server on non-shared files is about half that
of an NT server, or indeed any lightly loaded equivalent SMB server that
[note to techies: opportunistic locks - the client will ask for a
read/write lock on a file, in the hope that no-one else wants to share it.
the client can then do what it likes, all locally].
the performance of a heavily loaded samba server has been demonstrated to
be about twice that of an equivalent, heavily loaded NT server.
