It is a FreeBSD/amd64-6.1 as of February 7, running on a signle Opteron 244 
(hence UP). Machine has 2Gb of RAM and the active interface is em0 in full 
duplex 1GB mode. The ipfw and dummynet are loaded modules, not compiled in 
(don't know, if that matters).

Without the pipes, the same Sun machine (NFS client) sends this data at around 
36Mb/s, which is too fast for my program to compress, so I'd like to be able 
to throttle it.

Thanks! Yours,
