I have purused the Beowulf archive looking for comparisons of and/or
guidance for Gbit ethernet switches. I'm putting together a 16 node
cluster and would like to use one switch. I would prefer it to be
stackable if we find Gbit ethernet gives us significantly improved
performance. Obviously we want one that can support jumbo frames. Any
suggestions or comments?
