We have been trying to get performance results for Samba using NetBench. 

When oplocks were not enabled the performance was poor.  The throughput
was approx 70% of that of a pc based NFS client. 
When oplocks were enabled the test failed to complete.

The version of Samba was 1.9.18p2
The server was a sparc station 20.

The version of NetBench we were using is 5.01
The test was the default test (using the disk mix suite) 
The number of clients was 2.
