Thats a lot of NMBCLUSTERS, but if you've got the memory you should be okay. > Also, is there a way to use two NICs like a xl0 and a fxp0 and bond > them together with just one IP? Yes, netgraph. See "man ng_one2many".... I actually had the NMBCLUSTERS set that way even with 128MB boxes without issues but the box in question has 2GB of ram so it's not much of a big deal. I tried the ng_one2many and it did help bring things closer to 80Mbps from 60Mbps. I guess the HD is the bottleneck as it's only a notebook and even with the 7200rpm 60GB 2.5" drive, the sustained transfer rate is limited. Tried the HZ 1000 setting and recompiled a new kernel but it didn't really seem to do anything at all. I'm wondering what's the highest setting it will work with.Thanks,John --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Get better spam protection with Yahoo!
