... I'm back to the nve() driver. Something seems to slow down my AMD64 box when using the above mentioned driver.
The weirness is that everything but the network/nfe() seems to run better and smoother when using SCHED_ULE, but then my network seems to have problems even in connection websites or my lab's computer vi ssh (FreeBSD 6.2/i386 there).
Using nve() leads the box into a higher interrupt generation, but it works both fine with SCHED_ULE and SCHED_4BSD.
Sorry, I can not quantify those observations, it is just as it is - an observation. I appreciate every comment on how to do performance tests obatining number.
