Hey gang,
I would like to do a *valid* study of softdeps
impact on system performance. I have enabled it
on all of my hosts and so far am pleased, but
I want to find the catch.

Thusfar I have forumulated the following tools 
I can use to measure the impact of softdep:
        bsdbench (paging/mfs usage)  
        time ls -1R /usr/pkg
        time du -s /usr/pkg

I have not tried lmbench yet.

So, my question to the gang is, I want one tool,
one test, I am thinking bonnie.

Also I have only 2 platforms, a sparc and i386
both on 1.5-rel. If anyone else would like to join
the fray I would be more than happy to add the results.

Thanks for your time gang,
