"Much has been written about networking performance, optimization, and tuning on a variety of hardware, platforms, and operating systems under various workloads. After all, the proliferation of high-performance scalable servers (such as the IBM eServer xSeries x460 and the IBM System x 3950) has added a new level of complexity to networking and system performance. For instance, scalable servers whose capacity can be increased by adding full chassis (or nodes) add networking scalability across multi-node systems as a significant ingredient in overall system performance.

"The system under test (SUT) is a four-node IBM eServer xSeries 460 running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 for AMD64 and EM64T (x86-64)..."
