[RC5] Benchmarks - how do I interpret them?

I'm running dnetc v.2.8002-446-CTR-99111622 (Win32 client, no GUI, under NT
4). In the old Windows GUI version of the client, I could have the client
benchmark itself, and it would suggest what to set my buffers at for optimal
fetching and flushing. Now when I run a CSC benchmark, I'm just told that it
ran in 8.73 seconds. How do I interpret this?

Am I correct in assuming that this is the time it took to complete one
block, and thus I can use this data (and some simple arithmatic) to
determine how many blocks my machine would complete in a given amount of
time? Or am I way off base?
