I'm planning to test network performance on FreeBSD + bridged 
interfaces, very soon, but my test servers
are not so powerful as the server from this page :)
Best that I'll have is 1x quad core processor, 4 port gigabit intel 
network card and 2GB RAM.
But I think this should be enough for tests.

When I have some results/question I'll post to -performance :)
