I like the RH kernels, because of all the features they include. And I
never got bad network throughput with them. Do you have Gigabit Ethernet
where you have slow throughput? I have lots of servers here with all
of different NIC's and I have never had a speed problem on the network.
The only problem I remember was when sombody changed the switch config
from autosensing/autoselect to fixed 100mb/FD. This has just killed
throughput on several NIC's.
Sometimes you can't trust autosensing either. But by default the NIC and
switch seem to agree about what speed they want to talk. The one exception
I have encountered is with the Xircom Cardbus cards.
There are about 15 different variants of it and they all have their own
bugs and problems.
eg. it doesn't work untill you put it into promiscious mode.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
