AFAIK, it is mostly smaller reads and writes, although some of the devs
use the setup at night to store database repository dumps (~500MiB).

But...I do seem to recall from lurking on the Samba lists that 500MiB,
even a 1000 of them, were not really a problem. In fact, those guys were
writing large files (>2GiB), many of them, and their complaints were
more centered on large file support in Samba than in any performance
degradation from writing several large files. But that was a long time
ago and its a bit fuzzy, but the Samba archives should help.
