I curious about your kernel/TCP setting to achieve your throughput.  Can you
list your relevant parameters and their settings?  

Thanks.

That is pretty slow for a gigabit.  However, its a believable transfer
speed for a harddrive.

If have a cluster of 1750's, all connected with some powerconnect
5224's.  Using ttcp transfering 16gigabyte chunks, I've gotten around
112MB/sec, both ways.
