Except the management interface which I find horrible. Well, comparing it
with the 3Com SuperStack and BayNetworks switches that I have...
Have you tested the bandwidth or is there some published test about this ?
I don't have enough GigE nodes to fill one... The documentation implies
that there are 2 chips inside each responsible for 12 ports. I wasn't
worried about on-chip communication, but inter-chip one.
