Fast Networks [was Re: Ungodly packet loss rates]

We can build bigger doors (MTU) but the conveyer belts are stuck
at 100Mm/sec. We need faster conveyer belts!

We have them now.

(waiting for HPPI-64 or G-Ether technologies w/ baited breath :slight_smile:

No need to wait.
(Oh, and it would be better if your breath were bated rather than baited :slight_smile:

And then watch out 2-4Gbps backplanes... (that is aggregate right?)


There are technologies that already have aggregate throughput of 20+Gbps.
