[Samba] Standardized Benchmarking?

Hello all,

I'm creating a site where people can share their benchmarks.  If you are
interested, the site is at (I just started on it so it has the stock
graphics and color scheme still):


I would like some thoughts on what would be a good way to standardize the
testing so the results are more comparable.  Is Bonnie+ a good program for
hard drive speed testing?  Is there a better option?  I personally prefer
hdparm but that is not an option for those who have SCSI.

And what about the client to server copies?  I personally just copy the
file and use a stopwatch.  I could write a program for Windows that would
automate the process if one doesn't exist.

So, lots of questions.  Any help would be appreciated.
