I ran the "unixbench" benchmark as a quick-and-dirty test of the system's overall
performance under Ubuntu Studio 16.04.  The "System Score" was 562.5 for a
single CPU, 2289 for all 8.  The specific test numbers were what I'd expect
from a system with 8 2 GHz Xeon cores (File copy 4096 was 568018 KBps single CPU,
975956 KBps with all 8).  I did notice that the percent of time in wait states was
always well below 1%, usually 0.2% or less.

I will be shortly upgrading memory to 20GB and CPUs to 3 GHz quad core.  I will
have to reorganize the drive array in order to be able to set up a test system,
that may happen after New Year's.

16.04 is working well for me, but I'd like to figure out why 18.xx and my
hardware don't want to coexist.
