We're running samba 3.20 ( pretty default install ) on solaris.  During the day 99.9% of the time the load avg. on the server is just fine, however at times all the smbd processes go into a "run" state and put load avg. on the server to over 300.  This only lasts for a couple of minutes and then goes away.  The smbd  process count is normally around 400-600 all day.  So Its not like an all of a sudden excessive load.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
