[Samba] Tuning SaMBa in HP/UX 10.20 (200 Users)...

Our tests with CIFS/9000 Server on HP-UX 11.x have shown that on 2.2.3a
an smbd is allocated about 1Mb at start-up.  Extensive name mangling can
cause memory usage to increase to 2.5Mb per smbd if the connection is 
active for an extended period of time.

Also, with 2.2.3a you should adjust your HP-UX kernel variables NFILES
and NFLOCKS.  Do a search in the archive to see previous messages about
these parms.
