We are using some Dell 1550's as application and web servers. The application is using encryption similar to an SSL web server. These servers are headless with very little disk activity. Is it necessary to use Intel's i8x0 Random Number Generator or other kernel modules to add more devices to add to the entropy pool?

Thanks,
Jeremy
