We are buying some recent 64-bit capable machines to serve as iSCSI
backends to a file-server.

I was wondering whether somebody has input on which architecture x86
or x86_64 we should use for our iSCSI backends if we use the open-
iscsi driver? Does it matter at all? What are some factors that come
into play here?

For example:

1) Does memory performance differ and matter?
2) Is there any effect on disk performance?
3) What about network performance?
4) Which architecture are most open-iscsi users adopting (this would
potentially speed bug detection and resolution)?

Is anybody aware of any benchmarks that compare 32-bit vs 64-bit
performance with open-iscsi?
