I'm using/testing a C3K as an NFS fileserver for our cluster of
715/50's. A large portion of the nodes run diskless, and performance is
relatively good. Haven't run LADDIS or any other benchmarks. What do
people run these days to test NFS? If only it didn't cost an arm and a 
leg... SPEC SFS97_v3.0
