My results running postmark on a PII-450 with 196MB RAM and an IBM Deskstar
DJNA 352030 running -current as of a few weeks ago are:

1000/50000      UFS+softupdates         MFS             NFS

tr/s                    218             1562            100
read kb/s               699.05          4870            321.56
write kb/s              714.77          4980            328.79

The NFS server is a PII-233 with 32MB RAM (I know...) and a Maxtor 91728D8
IDE disk running 3.2R.

It seems strange that the 'old PPro 200' would have better results than my
PII-450, but there's probably some optimizations that I haven't done yet.
