[Samba] Samba performance tuning

Hi all!

I've seen a number of posts regarding Samba performance - either 
comments about perceived poor performance, or recommended parameter 
changes.  Instead of some arbitrary buffer numbers, or "play with it 
until it works", are there any analysis tools that can give quantitative 
answers ?  Something where instead of just saying, "Samba is too slow", 
I could say, "on a quad-opteron system, with 4G RAM, and full-duplex 
100BaseT network, SambaMark reports a score of 237.".

Maybe that's too much of a dream - is there a particular file 
size/copy/read technique and associated analysis that I should try?
