OpenMosix Network Usage and the D-Link DES-3205



I noticed that every once in awhile, openmosix would suck all of the bandwidth on my D-Link DES-3205 switch for a split second every once in awhile.  If I end up adding any additional nodes, I’ll probably migrate the openmosix machines to their own DES-3205 so that they don’t cramp my AA:O.

This is probably okay, as I need to bring another DES-3205 online.  By the way, if you’re looking for high-performance managed 10/100 switched networking, adn don’t mind the noise, they can be found on ebay for as little as $25-30 plus shipping.  They actually run on AMD K6-II’s, which I found amusing.  They are upgradable with modules, but I’ve never seen one in the wild.
