The gige is a trunk on a 24 port switch. Its not all that busy, less than
fast ethernet speeds. (120Mb combined in/out aprox) I don't know if I
mentioned this, but I was seeing 90+% interupt usage in top before I enabled
"polling" in the kernel. It improved things, bot im still not able to get
even 200Mb out of this box.
