Hi,

We are going to construct a PC cluster with more than 200 nodes.
Due to the limited budget, we decided to use Fast Ethernet as the
interconnect. We are thinking of using either Alpine 3808 from
Extreme or FastIron 1500 from Foundry, could anybody comment on
their performances? Or, if you have any web links that point to
some performance/evaluations of switches of similar type, this
would be appreciated.

Thanks.




Cheers

Anthony
