I'd like to have apache serve its docs from a samba mounted drive share.

I've seen articles of people doing this, so my question is more performance
related. Has anyone benchmarked this setup?

The NAS is fast as snot and lightly used. I've been able to sustain over
100mb/s writing to it over gig-e, so we can assume that its speed is

I don't imagine the apache sites will be too heavily hit, but it definitely
won't be a few hits a day type site.

Are there any good web pages discussing this anyone can point me to?

Also, somewhat related, anyone using sftp and samba to offer secure ftp to
Window's shares? Any issues?
